We enjoyed Pancake Day or also known as Shrove Tuesday. The children helped make and tried some pancakes with lots of delicious toppings.

Pancake Day is celebrated every year on the Tuesday before the start of Lent, when we feast on pancakes with sugar and lemon, syrup, chocolate, fruit and more. Pancake Day is on 9 February this year, but the date changes as it depends on when Easter falls. It takes place the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.
Pancake Day has been celebrated for centuries and some suggest it was originally a Pagan holiday that celebrated the arrival of spring, before the Christian era. Since then, pancakes have been traditionally eaten on Shrove Tuesday to use up foods like eggs and milk before the 40-day fasting period of Lent began.
