Welcome to term 2 everyone! The best term of all. Do you want to know why? Because it's Christmas!!!!


We will be continuing our topic of the ancient Egyptians, learning more about their weird and wonderful antics. We've already looked at how they mummified bodies. Take a look!


Step 1: Wash the body with palm oil and water from the River Nile.


Step 2: Take out the internal body organs (except the heart) and place the liver, lungs, intestines and stomach into canopic jars to dry.


Step 3: Take out the brain through the nostrils using a white-hot hook.


Step 4: Cover the body with natrol salt and leave it to dry for 40 days.


Step 5: After the 40 days, remove the natron and stuff the body with straw, dried grass or linen.



Step 6: Wrap the body in linen fabric and cover the organs in the appropriate amulet. For finishing touches, cover the head with a death mask.



Step 7: Finally, place the mummy in a sarcophagus and take to the pyramid.







In science we will be learning about classifying materials and even conducting some of our own experiments. WARNING: This could get messy!


In art and D.T we will be designing and making our own Christmas stockings. You never know, some presents might magically appear in them!
