A TIME capsule was buried by staff and pupils to mark the 50th anniversary of Carnarvon Primary School, Bingham.

The capsule contained artwork and toys donated by the year one pupils.

A group photograph of all 74 year one children has been included, along with current pictures of the school, so pupils who open the capsule in the future can see the changes.

Year one teacher Mrs Jane Djafer said: “The children decided what they wanted to put in the box.

“There is a collection of their favourite toys so we have got a Barbie doll, toy cars, toy aliens, and Batman and Spiderman figures.

“The idea for the capsule actually came from watching Blue Peter.

“We wanted to make something fun for the children and the idea had to fit a present day theme.

“They have all been so excited about the whole process.”

The head, Mr Jonathan Cunliffe, said: “The school has been celebrating all year.

“On top of the capsule, we have published a book called Every Child Can Be A Writer, and have created a mosaic.

“Every student contributed to both projects. It has been a great team effort.”

From stories called When I’m Older to My Perfect World, the book is filled with insightful dreams and thoughtful messages from every pupil at the school.
