The kindergarten children created their own mask using recyclable material, and designing a symmetrical pattern or focusing on place value. These little ones came up with the idea of creating a bin, using a cardboard box, to dispose of surgical masks instead of throwing it in the environment. They are hoping that someone will come up with the idea of recycling these face masks to reduce mask pollution!
Yr.1 and Yr.2
The years 1 & 2 classes enjoyed themselves playing the game of Snakes and Ladders and moving forwards and backwards according to clues such as, washing their hands frequently and not covering their nose. They also played a song about recycling using glass jars, water and spoons, thus investigating sounds.
Yr.3 and Yr.4
The year 3 class created posters emphasising the appropriate way of wearing face masks for a better level of protection.
The year 4 students came up with a set of questions to interview a person from the local council about the making of cloth masks. They asked her about the material used, the expenses incurred, the measurements of cloth and elastic used per mask and time taken to complete each mask.

Yr. 5 & 6
The year 6 students asked the other children in the other classes what type of face mask they are wearing and then plotted line graphs during the data handling lesson and then interpreted the graphs by writing some conclusions. They also created posters using their tablets about the awareness of mass pollution and how it is effecting our environment. Below are the results of the survey done by year 6 about the use of face masks.
The other survey was done by the year 5 class after compiling a survey within our community. Thanks to the great response, the students were able to transfer the data gathered into 6 bar graphs with the use of J2e application on their tablets. They also interpreted the data on the graphs by writing some conclusions.
