Youngsters from Hersden Village Primary School have let their imaginations run wild to produce futuristic creations on what they believe life will be like in the year 2075.
The pieces of artwork will be placed in a time capsule on site of Meadow View Residential Care Home – the new care home due to open this summer in Hersden, off Blackthorn Road.
Flying cars and living on Mars in 2075
Ten-year-olds Georgie Keefe, Kyle Thurston and Jack Rollinson visited the site with an array of artwork created by their classmates, including pieces showing flying cars.
Georgie described her vision of the future: “I think everything will be bigger – television will have way more channels with lots more fun programmes and we will no longer live just on one planet – I will be living on Mars in 2075!"
Jack added: "Life will be a safer and better place in 60 years’ time. Hospitals will have more bed spaces and medicine will be more advanced - there will be a cure for cancer!"
The school's head teacher, Jean Kennett, who joined the pupils for the visit, said they had really enjoyed taking part in the project, returning to the site to mark the opening of the show suite with the time capsule burial.
“The whole class have done a fantastic job with their artwork; they have really let their imaginations run wild,” she said.
"Everyone is very excited about the thought that their work will be buried in a time capsule.”
