We celebrated Shrove tuesday by eating some yummy pancakes. We researched and found out that shrove means to be forgiven and also learned about a tradition in the UK called pancake races. This custom grew up because of a legend dating from 1445. On Shrove Tuesday one woman was still making pancakes as the church bells rang. Rather than be late she took her frying pan and pancake with her. Click on the image to see more photos of our class eating their pancakes.
