Pancake Day

It's Pancake Day!


Today we have been reading non-chronological texts to find out where the tradition of making pancakes the day before Lent starts came from and why we celebrate Shrove Tuesday.


Once we learned it originated from people having to eat all their fatty foods before giving them up for the 40 days of Lent, we soon realised we would have to use up all of our fatty foods too... we just had to make pancakes!
