A way to capture feelings about COVID-19

The Time Capsule pack will be a perfect activity to start the 2020/21 school year. I don't know what to expect in September, but a few of our Special Needs students will have the opportunity to be onsite, in school, part time. This pack will be ideal for their return. I especially like the 'How am I Feeling' and 'Memories and Ambitions' organizers worksheets; they will be great for our students to express their worries & hopes. I think the students and parents, too, may be interested to capture their thoughts about this unprecedented time, to show their future selves. Thank you for including differentiated instruction.

A nice addition!

This is certainly a very interesting idea, and a good addition to the TeachingPacks collection! Lots of good links here - writing, geography, history and PSHE. This is an important issue that can fire the imagination, and this Teaching Pack could be very useful!
I do think, though, that it could be developed a little more. I see that there are several resources in there from other Packs - the Emotions Pack and the Goalsetting Pack, I think. There's plenty of writing exercises in here, but it would be good to have some more art help to add to the capsules, and advice on building a capsule, and on gathering things to put in it. Right now, it seems a bit worksheet-heavy (although usually I'm all in favour of worksheets). Also, here's an idea - for those 5-year-10-year-20-year sheets - how about adding 1 year, and then this would be a great tool for a class; the children could make capsules when they come into a year group (maybe including height measurements) and then at the end of the year they could take it out and see how they've developed.

Thanks for your fantastic feedback Rowan. We have included a large number of worksheets in this pack, as we wanted teachers and home educators to have lots to choose from. There is certainly no need to complete them all, but you can select the ones that are most appropriate for your children.We have also added a '1 Year' sheet based on your suggestion. Thanks!
