Last week, Year 3 were lucky enough to take part in a mummification workshop run by Maidstone Museum. They started by sequencing the steps involved in the process. The children then had the opportunity to handle some artefacts from the Egyptian period, alongside replicas, all related to making mummies. Then the real fun began! The children learnt how to mummify an orange! They followed the steps that would have been required but carried these out on an orange. The oranges are now all wrapped up in the classroom and we are going to keep an eye on them over the coming weeks to see what happens!
