It was an exciting day today when, following a lot of hard work, our 50th Anniversary Time Capsule was buried. It has joined the 25th Anniversary Time Capsule and the next time we will see it will be in May 2040. Put the date in your diary!
Each class has filled a container with things they think will be of interest to the children of 2040. There are magazines, lists of celebrities, a broken ipod, film taken all around Bingham (thanks Josh!), loom bands, Pokeman cards newspapers, questions to our future selves and lots lots more. (Have a look at the photos to see what the containers looked like before they were packed away. We only have 7 to show you – the photo of one of them didn’t come out and by the time we realised it was all buried…) These containers were then put in a large box, wrapped up carefully and buried alongside the one from 25 years ago.
We are at the end of what has been a very interesting and inspiring project and we must say a big thank you to Mr Smith who put all this into motion in 1990. We are looking forward to meeting as many of the children as possible in 2040 when their work gets dug up!
