Time Capsule

Year five had the privilege of representing Kempston Rural in burying a time capsule at the Storey Homes development on Martell Drive. Organised by the building company, the children were given the task of thinking of items to put in the time capsule that would represent our school and what life has been like for us in recent times.  We had some very thoughtful ideas including letters to the future, COVID tests, toys we currently play with, a map of the school, a school dinner menu, a school newsletter, a piece of our tartan uniform, popular books, a newspaper and information about popular apps, television programmes and the price of food. With the help of the children and the Mayor of Bedford, the time capsule was buried and is due to be opened in 2092. I wonder whether any of our children will still be living in the local area when it is opened. I wonder if they will have grandchildren who attend KRPS. The site can be found on Orchard Drive, just off Martell Drive and is marked with a plaque under the walnut tree if you would like to visit.
