Today is Shrove Tuesday and we have been learning all about how special the day is to us!

During lent we are not going to give anything up but instead be extra kind to our friends and family because it was an important time and place for Jesus, as it was a place of preparation – this means ‘getting ready’ for something important. Jesus was getting ready for his work of healing and teaching. It was important that he was somewhere on his own, so that he could focus on God, with no distractions. He had a busy and important time ahead.

We had a flipping pancake competition because the flipping of pancakes symbolises the start of something new = our kindness journey.


During forest school we made delicious pancakes to eat!
