What an exciting day we’ve had today with the Year 3 children becoming Egyptian embalmers! After learning all about the mummification process during our Science sessions, the children had the chance to put into practise what they had learnt by using a tomato.
First, the children washed their tomato (dead body) and then carefully made an incision in order to remove the insides (this was definitely the children’s favourite part!) The children then had lots of fun stuffing their tomatoes with a salt and bicarbonate of soda mixture.
The tomatoes have now been placed in a container (with more salt) and will stay in this state for another week where the children will then make further observations and discuss what has happened to the tomato.
Da iawn Blywddyn 3!
Well done Year 3!
