Celebrating Shrove Tuesday in Year One!
We began our morning by reading a book by Eric Carle called ‘Pancakes, Pancakes!’ and learnt some interesting information about where all the ingredients in pancakes actually comes from!
We spent time talking about the special time we are now entering called Lent and the significance of Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. We learnt that Shrove Tuesday marks the day before the beginning of the long fast of Lent.
The custom of making pancakes arose through the need to use up food items, which were forbidden during Lent.
We put our Master Chef skills to the test and made our very own mini pancakes!
We measured, stirred and even cracked the eggs! Our finished pancakes were delicious!
We each created a special Lenten Promise – something we would try hard to do during Lent. Many of our Lenten Promises involved helping others and showing Kindness to our friends and family.
We are looking forward to putting our ideas into action!
