Back in March, St Laurence C of E Junior Academy took part Let’s Count Day. An exciting new schools programme about Census 2021. On the day the children took part in a variety of activities but each year group were tasked with creating some work for a time capsule.

This week, with the help of the year 6 House captains, Mrs Mountjoy (Head of History) and Mr Gorham (our site manager who kindly dug the hole for us) buried our time capsule on the school field. The children were excited to think about who might find their letters, drawings and ideas about 2021, a year that will stay fresh in our minds for a while.

One of our Y6 House captains said, “We are making history burying this time capsule. I wonder if I will remember this when I am older. My mum went to school here; she might remember where the other time capsules were buried!”

Discussions were then had about the location of previous time capsules buried on the school grounds and how the children would love to find them and learn about past St Laurence pupils. Therefore, we would invite any former pupils who remember the location of any time capsules to get in touch with us – This email address is being protected from spambots.
