We have been learning to how make mummies. We looked at a set of instructions about how they made mummies in ancient Egypt. We had to tell the class the steps involved in making a mummy and then some of us had a go at 'mummifying' each other using lots of bandages.
Also, we are making paper models of a mummy which will go inside a sarcophagus, with a base and a lid. It's quite a complicated model so we are doing this very carefully.
Once we had learned about the process, we pretended to be Achillas, one of the people who makes mummies, and we wrote letters with instructions to children of the future. Here are some extracts from our instructions.
