Earlier this week in assembly, we made pancake mix and held a whole school pancake tossing competition as part of the celebration of Shrove Tuesday and the beginning of Lent.
This morning we followed this up with what we'd give up for Lent and how we might prepare for Easter.Two able assistants were needed to get us ready for the holiday by gathering a number of items that might be needed for an enjoyable break.
We looked at the special foods we might eat at Easter, who might be going away for a holiday, who might relax and watch television, who might go to a concert or a sporting event. So, although well prepared for what the holiday may bring, our hands were rather full and maybe this would make celebrating Easter quite difficult. That's one of the reasons why people may give up something during Lent.
