This study aimed to identify the level of anxiety caused by the emerging
coronavirus pandemic in primary school Pupils and its relationship to some
cognitive activities. Two hundred students from fifth graders (age: 10.3 ±
3.23) volunteered to participate in the study. The descriptive correlative
approach was used to find out the relationship between anxiety caused by
the emerging coronavirus pandemic and some cognitive activities, in
addition to the comparative descriptive approach to compare the students
who suffer from anxiety caused by the Coronavirus pandemic and students
who did not suffer from this anxiety at the level of cognitive activities. The
working memory test was applied as an indicator of some cognitive
activities, which included four dimensions (Phonological Loop- Visual
Spatial Sketch Pad- Central Executive- Episodic buffer). In addition to the
scale of anxiety caused by the emerging coronavirus pandemic, which
included three dimensions (the physiological dimension - the psychological
dimension - the cognitive dimension). Results showed that there were
statistically significant differences in some cognitive activities (working
memory tasks) among students with high and low anxiety due to the Corona
pandemic, and there was a negative correlation between anxiety caused by
the coronavirus pandemic and cognitive activities. The study suggested that
it is necessary to prepare a set of educational plans directed at reducing
anxiety caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, in addition to preparing
appropriate treatment programs to improve and raise the efficiency of
working memory for primary school students who suffer from anxiety caused
by the Coronavirus pandemic.
