Today year 4 attended The School of Mummification. We learnt all about how the Ancient Egyptian's mummified their dead bodies. 

We then had to mummify a tomatoe. First we removed all the organs from the body, throwing away the brain but keeping the liver,stomach, intestines and lungs and putting them in canonpic jars so they could send them to after life. Next, we cleaned them and then filled the empty bodies with natron (baking powder and salt). Finally, we sealed them and are now leaving them to mummify!! 

We graduated from the Mummification school and all got an embalming certificate.
