Acorn time capsule
The Reception children have been busy creating a very special time capsule. We have included information about our favourite toys, our friends and what we like and don’t like doing. We have
measured our height and the size of our hand and footprints and we have taken photographs
of ourselves and of things around the school which we think may change in some way. We put
all of these books into a biscuit tin time capsule along with things which represent our lives
in 2021, including some newspaper headlines, photos, current stamps and coins, a face
mask and even a 4 year old’s pair of socks!
We wrote a letter to our future selves, put it in the time capsule and then buried it in the
school grounds. We hope that in five years time, when we are very big and just about to move up to
middle school, we will be able to find our time capsule and dig it up and see just what has changed
since we were very small and in Acorn Class.
