Today we learned all about the Christian custom of Shrove Tuesday. We learned that Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day is the day before Lent. Traditionally Lent is a time of giving things up, so Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to indulge yourself, and pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs which were forbidden during Lent.

We made pancakes by measuring out the ingredients carefully and wrote the recipe and method to take home. We even had a go at flipping a pancake….well a bean bag! It was tricky!
