We have been talking about the Christian Festival of Lent and understanding what it is and why people chose to give up certain things for 40 days and 40 nights. We looked at the religious days of Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday and discussed why typically we make pancakes on Shrove Tuesday.
We had a go at making our own pancakes, looking and discussing what happens when the runny batter is cooked on the stove and also we talked about what healthy choice of toppings we could have on our pancakes instead of ones that are a little less healthy!! We even had a go a flipping it ourselves!
We then enjoyed eating our pancakes with our friends in the pancake cafe!
