Celebrating Pancake Day 🥞

Today we celebrated Shrove Tuesday and the start of Lent in the best way possible… tasting pancakes!

Children in EYFS were able to choose a topping to spread on their pancake. It’s no surprise that the most popular option was chocolate spread. 😋 The children were challenged to use their fine motor skills to control the knife and spread their topping independently.

Today we have also enjoyed listening to the story Mr Wolf’s Pancakes by Jan Fearnley and reading more information about why we celebrate Shrove Tuesday by eating pancakes. We discussed how tomorrow is the start of Lent and the beginning of the countdown to Easter Sunday. ✝️🐣 We are going to continue learning more about Easter and why it is a special Christian celebration later in the term.
