Frozen in time.

Friday 24th April Happy weekend. 

Frozen in time.

Yesterday I spent the day working in my back garden and I realised how lucky we are to live where we are. But each day seems to be the same they are blurring into one, if you were to ask me I wouldn’t be sure the day or date. It feels like time is frozen and it can be difficult sometimes to keep motivated. Hearing form you all has kept me motivated, exercise has kept me motivated, my family and dog keeps me motivated. You need to all remember how special you are.

It is important to remember this time, in our lifetimes something like this will help us grow and get stronger when we are out of it. We are never going to forget this!

A time capsule is a great reminder of things from the past. When I was in primary school my class dug up a time capsule from 1970 and it was full of a lot of interesting things. We got to see how people dressed, what music they liked, what films they liked and much more.

What would you put in a time capsule to help you remember your time in lockdown?

I would put a family picture in because we have all been together, I would put some music in because I have listened to a lot.

It has been amazing seeing some of your work here are some examples of what I’ve received. If you want your work or pictures up on the blog, please email the school. I would love to see more examples of your great work!

Holly created sparkles the unicorn top trump.

Eddie created a beast top trump.

Tilly has created a top trump card for Blaze the Pegasus and she also did a science experiment looking at the capillary action of plants.

    Hi Mr Ralph, I hope you are well and staying safe I am just about to go on times tables rockstars and I have been reading before I go to bed. I was just wondering what I will in my time capsule for lockdown . I like your hammock by the way!!! My dog has loved lockdown as she has had lots of attention and she can understand me when I say things to her , once the postman was here and she started barking and growling and my mum said if you growl you are not allowed outside and if you don’t growl you can come outside so she went inside😝😝😜😜😄.I have also taught her to pick the hand with the food she will put her paw on the hand and she was right so I gave her a big carrot🥕🥇🥇🥇🥈🥈🥈🥉🥉🥉. Stay safe ,🤾🏼‍♂️ Don’t try this Eddie xxx Don’t do this 🤮🤮🤮😷😷😷👎👎👎

    Hello Mr. Ralph I hope you are feeling well. What you just said was very deep. I like your hammock. We have set up a paddling pool but the water is still freezing cold at first my hands turned blue when I felt the temperature. I just wrote a card for Major Tom who is someone who survived world war two and did one hundred laps of his garden every pound you put in to NHS to raise charity. And when you said time capsule it reminded me of a sponge bob episode.

  • Mr Ralph 4 years ago
    Hi Beau, they are some really nice objects to put in and the reasons are great. I would love to see some more of your paintings I can put them up here if you email them to the school office. Doesn't feel like we will be wearing shorts and a t-shirt today it's quite cold. Mr Ralph.
