Year 3 have been learning all about the process of mummification as part of their Egyptian project. Yesterday, we applied both our DT sewing skills and project knowledge to successfully mummify a banana! There were lots of important steps we needed to take such as cleaning out the insides, using salt to dehydrate it and packing with sawdust to keep the shape. Finally, we had to sew it all together and bury it into some salt to keep it dry. It was a very messy, informative and enjoyable afternoon for all!
