Pancake Tuesday in Mrs. Mc Guirk’s Room

Today (Tuesday 25th February 2020), we had a Pancake themed day in our classroom.

1st, 2nd and 3rd class learned about the origins of Pancake Tuesday / Shrove Tuesday. We also learned how to sequence steps in making pancakes in our Irish lesson, and we completed maths challenge cards linked to the theme of pancakes. We also played a maths dice game with the theme of pancakes. We got active and sang ‘The Pancake Song’ and added in some cool actions. We composed our own acrostic PANCAKE poems. We learned about the way Pancake Tuesday is celebrated in other countries.

The children also got the chance to sample some delicious pancakes, courtesy of some of our parents who volunteered their time to come in and cook for them.
