Mummification

Year 4 pupils have been thinking about instructional writing over the last few weeks. We decided to mummify one of the children to help us remember the process involved in mummification. 

The children all helped during the process including removing the organs and pulling out brains through the nose with a hook. We wrapped the body in linen cloths and placed amulets on the body to prepare the body for the after life. 

We took pictures of each stage of the mummification process so the children could use them to support the writing of their own instructions.
