Year 8 Mummies

You might have seen the appearance of a ‘mummy’ or two along the History corridor in November when the Year 8 pupils tried their hand at some mummification. The Year 8 pupils had been learning about life in Ancient Egypt in their History lessons. They studied the process of mummification and what the process involved. Mrs Irwin was very impressed by the pupils’ efforts and needless to say, if you take a look at the pictures, some of our pupils would certainly make good embalmers. The Year 8 pupils certainly enjoyed this activity with Lucas Eymere and Aaron Fleming from 8M, and Josh Hill and Dean Millar from 8W, claiming the prize for best ‘mummy’ in their class. Keep an eye out in case you see any loose ‘mummies’ wondering around school!!
