Preparing for the pyramid- year 6 mummify fish

Year 6 are learning all about the ancient Egyptians this half term and this week they have been thinking about mummification. They spent Friday afternoon practising their embalming techniques on fish which was not for the faint hearted as it involved the removal of all the major organs. They will  now be able to use their expert knowledge in their writing and perhaps in their future medical careers!
