Mummification in Y5

A picture says 1,000 words - if that's true this slideshow shared the excitement, disgust and surprise of our recent launch of the Pharaohs topic.  We began the process of mummifying a chicken.  This will take around 50 days and we hope to have a mummified chicken pharaoh just before we break up for Christmas.
