We enjoyed learning about Shrove Tuesday this week. The children discovered why we eat pancakes, to mark this important day in the Christian calendar, and to understand what Shrove Tuesday is the start of. We discussed what we might all give up for Lent and the children had some interesting ideas - although I am not sure vegetables is difficult for some of them to 'give up'...I decided Cadbury's chocolate bars (this continues to be a challenge, but I have yet to break my Lent). This is all part of our RE curriculum. The children were introduced to the poem 'I am walking with my iguana' - I am excited about next weeks poetry writing! Have a great weekend.
