Reception Pancake Day Activities and Races March 19
Reception had a fantastic day learning about Shrove Tuesday and the Christian traditions and beliefs such as lent and pancake races. We all participated in a pancake race throughout the morning and the fastest two children in each class qualified for the final. We most enjoyed making and tasting the pancakes. We were surprised that something so yummy is made from only three ingredients. We watched and discussed how the ingredients changed as they were mixed and cooked. In the afternoon some of our parents joined us for the final of our pancake races! Some of them even had a race themselves – they were very competitive! Congratulations to our two winners who were awarded with a small hamper containing all of the ingredients they needed to enjoy pancakes with their families.
