Special Task

Time Capsule Task

Over the week we will be posting activities to help you make a very special Time Capsule, so you can remember and look back at this time when you are older!

We will be posting a different activity each day. There is a print out option but if you cannot print, then use it as inspiration to draw and write your own version at home!

Today I would like you to think about how you are feeling during this time and the things you are looking forward to doing when it is over.
