Week 3

On Monday we learnt that pancake day is called Shrove Tuesday and that it is celebrated on the Tuesday before Lent begins.  Lent is when Christians get ready for Easter and in the past gave up such foods as eggs, milk and sugar.  Making pancakes used the ingredients up before people gave them up for Lent.  We had great fun on pancake day!  We decorated our pancakes to our preferred taste and had lots of options to choose from. They were yummy!  In the afternoon we split into 3 groups for a pancake race.  Some of us managed to flip our pancakes successfully and others landed on the floor!
