Class One pancakes
On Tuesday Class 1 celebrated Shrove Tuesday
On Tuesday Class 1 celebrated Shrove Tuesday cooking pancakes and dancing on the lawn. The word 'Shrove' means absolution and this day is the last day of 'fat' eating before the period of Lent. Traditionally, people used up all their flour, butter and sugar to prepare for the month of fasting before Easter. As well as helping with cooking, the parents provided music for the occasion on the piano accordion which was very conducive to conviviality!
