So exactly why do we eat pancakes on Shrove Tuesday?

Do YOU know the answer to this question? 

Well,  Level 1 and 2 took time to find out about Shrove Tuesday before indulging in pancakes through the generous help of some mothers who cooked and served the pancakes. Check out our findings and who enjoyed eating pancakes!

 

What is Shrove Tuesday?

Shrove Tuesday  (also known as Pancake Day) is the last day before the period which Christians call Lent. It is traditional on this day to eat pancakes. 

 

Why are Pancakes eaten on Shrove Tuesday?

Lent is a time of abstinence, of giving things up. So Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to indulge yourself, and to use up the foods that aren’t allowed in Lent. Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs which in the past were were forbidden during Lent.

 

When is Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day)?

Shrove Tuesday is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday and is therefore the final day before the commencement of Lent, our Catholic period of preparation leading up to Easter Sunday.

Did you know…

girl on pile of books            If you read just 15 minutes a day, in one year you will have read over 1,000,000 words. It all adds up so make sure you are reading!!! 

In Level 2 we will be continuing the Daily 5′ whole-school approach to Literacy, specifically Reading.

Remember when choosing a book….

We are so lucky at OLGC to have had a whole week of swimming lessons. Thanks to Mrs Barry for organising this for us.  It was the best fun and we learnt so much. Some of us found swimming with our clothes on over our bathers really challenging!

Hope we can do it again next year.

How well do you know your number facts?

Today we had a lots of fun playing ‘Christmas Lights’ where we were able to practice our number facts using all 4 operations at 3 levels!

It’s time to put up the Christmas lights but you need to solve maths problems to earn lights.  The more problems you solve the more lights you will earn, and the harder levels earn more points!  Click on the link to see how many lights you can earn.
