Artefacts from a year living in the shadow of coronavirus have been buried in a time capsule at a Harpenden school.
Roundwood Primary School in the town wanted to mark the historical significance of the last year for the children, which has had such an impact on their lives.
Each class put something into the time capsule to represent the last year, and one child from each class watched as the box was buried and explained what they had put in and why.
Artefacts included photos of the school as it is now, a rainbow of hands, a sparkly hand sanitiser, a sculpture made from disposable face masks, a Lego house, scrapbooks of photos and a memory stick filled with 30 second clips about Lockdown experiences. Of course, there was also a copy of the day’s paper, the Herts Advertiser.
The time capsule will be dug up in 2027 when the current Reception class will be in Year 6.
