On Tuesday 25th February, pupils in Reception Classes were very excited to learn about Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day! They learnt that Shrove Tuesday is always the last Tuesday in February and that it is the start of Lent which lasts for 40 days. They then learnt how some people give up something they really like for Lent. Pupils then discussed what they would be prepared to give and ideas included sweets, ice cream, biscuits and chocolate! Then as a final surprise pupils were invited to try a pancake and to choose what kind of topping they would like. The most popular choice was golden syrup, followed closely by sugar and lemon juice, then jam and plain pancakes came in last.
