Some of our students have been recording their time during lockdown with a Time Capsule Project. Diane McLoughlin, our Art, Design and Textiles tutor shared a great resource for students to record their time during lockdown. We are currently living in a time that is strange to us all. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we live our lives considerably and this can have an effect on our well-being. It is important for students to reflect on the experience and try to make sense of it and this project was a great way to encourage them to do that.

Diane said: “The Time Capsule Project is an opportunity for students to write about the things they like, activities they are looking forward to, things they miss. I saw it as a good tool to help good mental health as well making some art. Students have engaged well with this, writing their thoughts and feelings as well as drawing pictures and including newspaper cuttings.”

A few comments from students about what they have learnt during the lockdown include:

“Never take simple things for granted.”

“I have learnt to cook at home and to look after my family.”
