We have been learning about Shrove Tuesday. We found out that it is the day before Ash Wednesday which begins Lent. It is an important time for Christians where they begin to think about Jesus, how special He was and what a sacrifice He made for the people who believed in Him.
The children really enjoyed making pancakes and eating them. They had fun having pancake races and playing with the parachute.
They also learnt about Mardi Gras which means 'Fat Tuesday'. They had their own carnival parade and dance.
