Narrator: Peppa and her friends are at their playgroup.

Madame Gazelle: Today we are going to make a time capsule.

Peppa Pig: What’s a time capsule?

Madame Gazelle: A time capsule is something that will show people in the future how we lived.

Peppa Pig: How?

Madame Gazelle: We’ll put special things in this box and then we’ll bury it in the school garden.

Suzy Sheep: Will it grow?

Madame Gazelle: No, Suzy. It will remain in the ground for many years.

Madame Gazelle: Now, what things should we put inside?

Peppa Pig: A comic.

Madame Gazelle: Very good, Peppa.

Suzy Sheep: Music.

Madame Gazelle: Very good, Suzy.

Danny Dog: A toy.

Pedro Pony: A coin.

Zoë Zebra: Stamps.

Rebecca Rabbit: A carrot.

Madame Gazelle: You do like carrots, don’t you, Rebecca?

Rebecca Rabbit: Yes.

Madame Gazelle: All those are excellent things to show our daily lives.

Peppa Pig: Madame Gazelle, what will the future be like?

Madame Gazelle: What do you think it will be like?

Peppa Pig: I think in the future I will live on the moon, and all my friends will come to visit.

Danny Dog: And I will fly a space rocket.

Peppa Pig: Hello.

Madame Gazelle: Now we’ll record a message for the people of the future.

Madame Gazelle: Say “Hello” to the future.

Peppa Pig: Hello to the future. You’re probably all living on the moon now.

Suzy Sheep: And going on holiday to Mars.

Danny Dog: And flying around in space rockets.

Madame Gazelle: Wonderful.

Narrator: It is nearly home time and all the parents have arrived.

Peppa Pig: Mummy, Daddy, we’ve made a time capsule.

Madame Gazelle: Ah, Daddy pig. You’re just in time to help us dig a hole.

Daddy Pig: Yes, of course.

Narrator: Daddy Pig is digging a hole in the school garden for the time capsule.

Daddy Pig: There.

Peppa Pig: Can we dig it up now?

Madame Gazelle: It will remain in the ground for many years.

Peppa Pig: Oh, but I can’t wait that long.

Madame Gazelle: Peppa, you are just like your daddy when he was little.

Peppa Pig: Am I?

Madame Gazelle: Yes, I remember when I was his teacher.

Peppa Pig: Did you teach my daddy?

Madame Gazelle: Yes, I taught all of your mummies and daddies. Didn’t I?

Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig, Mummy Sheep, Miss Rabbit, Mrs Dog, Mr Zebra, Mrs Pony, Mrs Cat: Yes, Madame Gazelle.

Madame Gazelle: When your mummies and daddies were little, they made a time capsule too.

Daddy Pig: Yes, we did. We buried it next to a little tree.

Peppa Pig: Can we dig it up?

Madame Gazelle: Yes. I think we buried it over here.

Daddy Pig: Oh, I thought it was a much smaller tree.

Madame Gazelle: It was a long time ago. The tree has grown a bit since then.

Daddy Pig: I’ve found something.

Daddy Pig: It’s our old time capsule.

All the Parents and Children: Hurrah!

Daddy Pig: I can’t wait to open it.

Madame Gazelle: Stand back, children.

All the Parents and Children: Yes, Madame Gazelle.

Madame Gazelle: What do we have here?

Madame Gazelle: An old comic.

Daddy Pig: That was my favourite comic.

Madame Gazelle: A tin toy.

Mrs Dog: My favourite toy.

Madame Gazelle: Music.

Mummy Sheep: My favourite record.

Madame Gazelle: And a very old carrot.

Miss Rabbit: That’s mine.

Rebecca Rabbit: What a good choice, Mummy.

Madame Gazelle: And a videotape of your mummies and daddies when they were little.

The Children: Oo-oo.

Peppa Pig: Who’s the little piggy in the glasses?

Mummy Pig: Aw, that’s Daddy Pig.

Mummy Pig: Oh, and that’s me.

Little Daddy Pig: Hello to the future.

Peppa Pig: What a squeaky voice you have.

Little Daddy Pig: You’re probably living on the moon now.

Peppa Pig: Silly little Daddy Pig.

Narrator: Making time capsules is such fun. And finding them is even better.
