Welcome to 3/ 4 blue where we share photos, videos and information of the exciting and fun things we have been learning about in school!
Today we learnt about how volcanoes are formed over time through an exciting science experiment involving using bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to make a volcanic explosion! We learnt about how volcanologists can take samples from a volcano to understand more about when it has been formed.
Today we had fun acting out the process of mummification. Firstly, the pharaoh’s body would be cleaned using palm oil and water from the river Nile.
We pulled out the brain through the nose with a hook and then removed the vital organs, stuffing the inside of the body with pieces of linen.
Next, we applied makeup, fake eyes and hair to make it look beautiful.
Finally, we wrapped the body in layers of linen cloth to preserve it.
