Shrove Tuesday Fun in Wrens!

This is what we needed to find out, “What is Shrove Tuesday and why do we eat pancakes?

We now know Pancake Day always takes place on the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of the Christian season of Lent in the run up to Easter.

Traditionally, Shrove Tuesday was a day for using up food that could not be eaten during Lent, which was a time for fasting.

Therefore people made pancakes using leftover eggs and butter. All this talking about pancakes had made us very hungry, so we set about making our very own pancakes.


These were delicious!!! It also gave some of us the opportunity to work on our knife and fork skills!

Once we had finished our pancakes off, we went and had a pancake race. This was great fun! (Don’t worry the pans weren’t hot!)

We finished our day off with a story, ‘The Giant Pancake’. We can’t wait for Shrove Tuesday to come around again.
