Year 3 Ancient Egyptians
Year 3 have been busy in Topic lessons learning about the Ancient Egyptians; all the different Gods they believed in, understanding the hieroglyphs they wrote with and this week we even made our very own tomato mummies!
Here are some photos of us washing the tomatoes, cutting them open, scooping out their insides, making the natron mixture (salt and bicarbonate of soda) and filling and covering the tomato with the mixture.
We will now leave the tomatoes for 70 days to see what happens to them. (We even left one tomato un-mummified to see what happens to that too – we predict it will be pretty disgusting!)
We’ll let you know how we get on!
