Yr 6 Ancient Egypt Topic

As part of their work on the Ancient Egyptians, Year Six have been learning about the process of mummification - by mummifying a mackerel! They followed the process that would have been carried out on the ancient Egyptian pharaohs after their death, and the mackerel are now busy mummifying in their 'sarchophagus'. In a few months' time, they will unwrap the mackerel to assess how successful the mummifying process has been.
