To support their studies on Ancient Egypt, Year 3 have been mummifying tomatoes. Firstly, the children scooped out the inside of the tomato (as Egyptians once did when they mummified people!) Then they applied hand sanitiser to the tomato to kill the bacteria before weighing the tomato and salting it. And voila! After 2 weeks the tomatoes are mould free and preserved!
