Shrove Tuesday pancake racing!

In this afternoon’s assembly, we learned about Shrove Tuesday and why pancakes are traditionally eaten each year. Shrove Tuesday marks the start of Lent for Christians - a time in which people choose something to give up as Jesus did when he withdrew to the desert. Nowadays, this is often chocolate or crisps but, many years ago, people often gave up eggs, milk and flour. What do these ingredients make? Pancakes! As well as learning about the meaning of Shrove Tuesday, we had great fun with a house pancake race competition; the winners were Marcus Rashford!
