What is Shrove Tuesday?

THE YEAR 3/4s have been learning about Shrove Tuesday.

Here is what we learnt

Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Lent is the time when we think of others, pray more and some people give up something that they like. Hundreds of years ago people would not eat luxuries during Lent. In those days eggs, milk and sugar were luxuries . As eggs, milk and sugar can go off the people decided to use them all up before Lent began. They mixed all the ingredients together and added flour and made the first pancake!
