Pupils from The Friary School chose objects such as a newspaper, a map of the city, an Ed Sheeran CD and a pound coin to bury for future generations.

The capsule was put in the ground at The Spires care home.

Mark Drury, assistant headteacher at The Friary School, said: “Students had a wonderful day burying the time capsule full of reminders of the here and now for their future selves.

“Our students from Year 7 submitted so many interesting and thoughtful entries, and are really looking forward to uncovering them here at The Spires 50 years from now.”
