On Pancake Day we did lots of learning all about Shrove Tuesday. We learnt how some other countries celebrate the day too.
Do you know-
In Iceland-They have salted meats and peas and call the day 'Bursting Day'.
In Portugal- They have doughnuts and call the day 'Carnival'.
In Sweden- They have pastries called Semla and call the day 'fat Tuesday'.
In Poland- They have pancakes but celebrate the day on the Thursday before Shrove Tuesday.
In Estonia- They have Pea Soup and Cream cakes.
On Ash Wednesday people start their lent by giving up something- as a whole class we are working hard on giving up telling tales.
