Pancake Tuesday


Today is Pancake Tuesday also known as Shrove Tuesday. Traditionally, it is the day when we feast on rich foods, like tasty pancakes, before Lent begins tomorrow. In France and the United States the day is known as Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday. The French like to make a wish before flipping their pancakes. They do this while holding a coin in the other hand.

Many classes had pancake parties today and enjoyed a variety of fillings such as sugar and lemon, jam, butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit and of course chocolate spread. What filling will you have tonight?

The boys and girls in Ms Hamill's Junior Infant Class and Ms Mc Laughlin's First Class thoroughly enjoyed their pancakes today as you can see from the photos below!
