We just cannot believe how quickly the work toward the new building is progressing. The time is getting close for us to be preparing a time capsule to place behind a specially placed stone in the fabric of the new building.
A time capsule is a container that holds present day items, such as photos, newspapers, letters and more. It’s typically hidden away for your future self or someone of your choosing to open. The container stores a selection of objects chosen as being typical of the present time, buried for discovery for the future.
In this case, we plan to keep it safely stored for 100 years and then pupils in 2120 can open the capsule to find out more about how we lived. A time capsule is also a historic cache of goods or information, usually intended as a deliberate method of communication with future people, and to help future archaeologists, anthropologists, or historians.
Potential Items that can be included into the capsule are:
As Walkley families we are asking for your ideas and contributions. The time capsule is likely to be a in a secure, watertight container and should represent Walkley Primary School and incorporate local, national and world events in 2020. We will have three containers full of our ideas. All ideas welcome………….
NOMINATING ITEMS TO GO INTO THE TIME CAPSULES WILL BE PART OF THE HALF TERM LEARNING LOG COMPETITION ALONGSIDE DESIGNING THE BEAR COMPETITION. DETAILS TO FOLLOW NEXT WEEK
