Pancake Day is usually known as Shrove Tuesday and it is the last day before the period known as Lent in the Christian calendar. It is on the 13th of February this year, just the day before Valentine’s Day. The idea is that Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to use up foods that you are not allowed during Lent, a time of abstinence and giving things up.
Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain butter, eggs and fat which are not allowed during Lent.
Our Pancake Day worksheets can also be found in the Maths Special Occasions category and includes a great worksheet looking at finding the correct order when making pancakes – not as easy as it sounds! Also there are pages on the ingredients needed to make pancakes, which asks some pretty tricky questions involving ratio, so it is probably best suited to Year 6 children.
