18th March is Global Recycling Day. This year it is focussed on the ‘recycling fraternity’, celebrating those who put themselves on the frontline to collect waste and recycling during the multiple lockdowns. There is also a stress on the importance of education about recycling and pollution.
At 2Simple, we haven’t collected waste, but we have collected a range of activities and put them on the same page in Purple Mash, so that you can easily access and use them in class, encouraging everyone to recycle.

Each month we highlight a #MashoftheMonth, focussing on a tool or application within Purple Mash and how it can be used within the classroom to support learning across the curriculum. During the month, if you share how you have used #MashoftheMonth, you will then be entered into a draw to win a 2Simple Goody Bag!
Our #MashOfTheMonth for March is a brand new application within Purple Mash – 2Challenge. Designed for teacher use, 2challenge is a great quick start tool for supporting learning engagement, promoting challenge, inspiring children and getting them thinking.
