Staff and children at a Thame primary school buried a Jubilee time capsule for discovery by generations to come.

The youngsters at Tetsworth Primary School buried their commemorative Jubilee time capsule into the new entrance way, which is currently being built at the school.

The children came up with a variety of ideas for items to be buried in the capsule, which included:

> A newspaper from this week.

> Jubilee mementos, including one of the Tetsworth Jubilee bears that the children were given as a Jubilee souvenir.

> Olympic mementos

> Handwritten memories of Tetsworth, written and compiled by the children.

> A Royal Wedding commemorative mug.

> Sport Relief socks, which the children had as part of their involvement in the recent Sport Relief campaign.

> Photos of school events and the programme from their performance of Aladdin.

> A mobile phone.

> A photo of the capsule as it was about to be buried.

Headteacher at the school, Alan Haigh, and Alison Charlton, head of teaching and learning, conducted the ceremony by laying the time capsule into the ground, as the children looked on.

On completion the new entrance is due to be named ‘Jubilee Gate’ to mark this year’s celebrations.
