Year 4 have been learning about Ancient Egypt this half term.
Can you remember the process for mummification?
What body parts were removed? and how were they removed?
I would love to know more about the mummification process. I heard that mummies are a bit scary….are they? Can’t wait to find out more information on your blog.
Mrs Jackson, mummies are not scary because they are dead.
Next time when we go on the website we will tell you more about mummifaction.
Mrs Jackson are you scared of mummies?
Mrs Jackson did you know the first pharaoh was Narmen
Mummies are not scary because they are dead.They are fun to learn about.I do not think they are scary.
Hello Miss Jackson.
Mummy’s are not scary because they have died.
Yes I really am scared of mummies. I once saw one at the Leeds Museum and it wasn’t pretty! Luckily it was behind a thick piece of glass so I couldn’t get too close.
Thank you for all the additional information. Awais, I did not know that the first pharaoh was called Narmen. Thank you for the information.
I have heard that when they remove the body parts, they pull some of the brains out of the mummies nose. Is this right Year Four?
Mr Harrison that is right they do pull the brain out of the nose.
We wan’t you to guess what else you know about the mummies.
Yes Mr Harrison you are right but there are more things that they take out of the body.
Yes mr harrison thats right. They do take the body parts out before they rap the mummy.
Yes mr Harrison they take the organs liver brain and heart and
I can’t wait to read more of your blog year 4. Did the Egyptians only mummify humans?
Hello Year 4. I think Mr Harrison is correct. They pulled the brains out of the nose with a metal hook and then preserved their internal organs in canonic jars. That sounds foul!!!! I wouldn’t like that job.
They did Mr Langley, although they used canopic jars.
Can any one remember what the Egyptians put on the lids of canopic jars? …and you are correct in saying it was a foul job, not something I would want to do!
Mr Watson on the canonic jars we put the pharohs faces.
Mr Lagely there are not conic jars they are conapic jars.
You look like you are having fun! Our year 5 are doing Egypt. I will get them to look at your blog.
That would be fantastic Mrs Holland. Would be great to get some joint work going?
Absolutely! I have already told Mrs Broadbent the Year 5 Teacher all about you! In their classroom there are Tutankhamun death masks all over the place. Very scary when you put them on!
Thank you for telling us that year five in your school are learning about Ancient Egypt.
Sounds fantastic! I would love to have a look at the death masks, any photos?
Tutankhuman’s death mask is blue and gold
Aw yeah tuttukamman is blue and orange.
I will speak to Year 5 and get them on our blog
I was talking to my daughter about this the other day as she is studying Ancient Egypt at school too. She seemed to be rather an expert, which worried me a little bit! I did sleep with one eye open, just in case she tried to wrap me up in toilet roll!
I seem to remember that some organs were put in special jars and one was pulled out of the nose, but I can’t recall which. Can you help me?
Mrs Jackson you are wrong because mummy are dead
The spelling for the jars is really conopic jars Mr langley
Did you know the god of dead in Egypt is Anubis.
Mr harrison you are wright because they remove the lung,s the liver heart soil.
I am so pleased to see so many children blogging. Keep it up, I have loved reading some of your comments.
Thank you verry much Mr Harrison for saing that. I hope you have a nice holaday.
Thanks for the info Awais. )
Mr Langley did you know that when the Pharoas died there servent got burried
Your correct faria when pharoahs died there servents got burried alive
Hi Year 4, I think that the bodies were covered in natron salt to preserve them before they were wrapped up. LPS
Well the Liver, intestines,stomach and lungs were removed and placed inside canopic jars.
The brain was poked out with a metal stick and then thrown away.
The body was covered in natron salt and then wrapped in linen.
The brain was removed from the nose with a hook and then they would cut a small slit in the left side of the body and then the stomach,liver,intestines and the lungs were removed and put in canopic jars and then the body would be wrapped in linen ready for the afterlife.
The egyptians belived that the brain was not important so they got rid of it. But the egyptians thought that the heart was very important so they left it in the mummies body ready for the afterlife.LPS
Hi year 4,
The brain was removed with a metal hook and then thrown away. Then you put a slit in the left side of the body and then you take the liver, stomach, lungs and the intestines out and put them in the four canopic jars.
Visiting your blog for the first time. Excellent work. Your Ancient Egypt topic sounds fascinating-and a bit gory!
Yes Erin they didn t think the brain was inportant they just through it away. They thought the Heart was more inportant for the after life.
Zoya and Seher you are correct the egyptians thought the brain was not important they just threw it away
these are some cool information and i am from bradford moor primary school and can you comment on our blog because i have commented on your blog and my teacher even commented his name is ian hayslop
In the mummification process the mummy’s organs are taken out of the mummy’s body
and placed in canopic jars . The mummy’s brain is pulled out by a stick that goes through
your nose and the stick is then pulled out with the brain.
