Pancake Day Celebrations

Children in our reception classes learnt about Shrove Tuesday and the tradition of making pancakes. Everyone enjoyed mixing the batter, tossing the pancakes and adding their own garnishes to make healthy treats.

 Shrove Tuesday is a Christian festival celebrated in many countries across the globe. It falls on the Tuesday before the beginning of Lent – a period of around six weeks leading up to Easter. During Lent, Christians give up luxuries to remember when Jesus went into the desert for 40 days to fast and pray.
