Pancake Tuesday

The children had great fun on Pancake Tuesday preparing, cooking and eating their delicious pancakes.
Cooking is not only a fun, engaging activity for children, but is also an important development tool for all ages.
Measuring out ingredients is a practical way of learning about weight and capacity in Maths.
As they follow a recipe, children organise ingredients, follow a sequence, and carry out multiple directions. Cooking is a great way to develop practical life skills.
The children also learned about the tradition behind Pancake Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday i.e. that on the day before Lent begins, Christian families would use up all their eggs, butter, milk and flour in one dish, before fasting for Lent.
