The capsule is to be sealed and preserved for the next 25 years and UK students are being invited to use art, photography, writing or other media to explain how the pandemic has affected their everyday lives.
Linking to this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week, the project also encourages children to share their reflections on how the pandemic affected their learning, friendships and everyday lives.
Their reflections on this important moment in history will be shared with future generations when the capsule is opened in 2047.
The project is being led by children’s charity Place2Be, BAFTA Kids, and the government-funded Oak National Academy.
Schools are invited to submit a selection of their pupils’ work by September 10 for inclusion in the time capsule.
