Children from Nailsea enjoyed wrapping their friends up in toilet roll as they learnt about Egyptian mummies.

Pupils from Grove Junior School, in Whiteoak Way, covered each other in toilet paper to find out about Egyptian customs and culture and how they prepared bodies for burial.

The children then took part in races around the school grounds as part of the mummy challenge.

The activity was part of year three’s topic on the ancient civilisation.

Unravelling after the races also proved quite a challenge.
