Good Morning Everyone! 

Today’s activity:  Create a Historical Time Capsule!

A time capsule is a fantastic way of recording a moment of your life so that you can reflect on it in the future. It’s a brilliant historical primary source. At the moment, we find ourselves in a very different world to the one we are used to. In many years to come, children will most likely be taught about this period of time in their history lessons. With this in mind, we would like you to record what your life is like during this time for you to reflect upon it at a later date. 

Attached, is a time capsule template from Fleetwood Museum. We would like you to use this template to record your ideas. You do not need to print it; you can write out the questions. Read the instructions carefully.

In addition to the tasks set out on the instruction page, we would like you to write a reflection about how life is now and the changes that have been made, which can then be put into your time capsule. 

Ideas to write about: 
– Home schooling: How is this different? What are you doing at home to learn? How do you feel about not being in school? What are you enjoying about learning from home?
– Not being able to leave your house apart from daily exercise. 
-Which extra-curricular clubs are you not able to take part in at the moment? How do you feel?
-How do you feel about the changes in your life now? 
-Are you missing your family and friends? How are you keeping in touch? 
-Toilet roll shortage!
