KS2 - 1st June 2020

Please note this is a guide of what children will be doing in school, there is no requirement for all of these tasks to be completed each day! Do what suits you and your child each day.

This week, we are asking all of the children to take part in a Time Capsule project.

Below, there is a suggested activity which children could complete as part of their time capsule but you could do something else!

• As well as the suggested activity, you could keep a short diary entry each day which you could add to your time capsule at the end of the week.

• Additional resources: here


Pretend to be a news reporter and write a newspaper report about coronavirus and how it has affected everyday life. 

Choose a family member to interview about their experiences during lockdown. You can use the questions below or think of your own! 
Suggested questions:

• How many days have you been at home?
• What are you excited to do once this is over?
• What are you grateful for?
• What have you enjoyed about being at home? 


Use paint to create hand prints of all the people you have been living with during lockdown.  
If you have a piece of string or ribbon, ask an adult to cut a piece which is the same height as you are. Remember to add the date to the string/ribbon.
Write a letter to your future self about what 2020 has been like, how life has changed and the experiences you have had.  


Have you learnt any new skills while you have been in lockdown? Draw a picture, take a photograph or perhaps make something using your new skill to include in your time capsule! 
Create a timeline of your life to date, including all the important stages in 2020 so far. You could include dates such as when lockdown started, when schools closed, when the Queen addressed the nation etc. 


Write a message to your class teacher or some of your friends who you haven’t seen for a while. Write down what you have been up to and what you are looking forward to after lockdown
Draw a picture of your house, family and activities which you have been up to during lockdown. You could include photographs, recipes of meals you have cooked. 


Connecting with others.

• How have you been keeping in touch with friends and family?
• How have things in your local area changed?
• How have things changed around the world?
• How are you helping others during this time?

Now it’s time to create your time capsule to add all of your things to! Find a box (a shoe box is ideal) and decorate the box to make it personal to you and your family.  Once you have added all of your time capsule pieces, put it somewhere safe so you can look back on it when you are grown up
