Chickens, cows and trees helped these adventurous eaters to have a tasty Shrove Tuesday.

The children at Shepherd Lodge Nursery, St Annes, learned about where their food comes from as they made pancakes.

The toddlers also learned about Lent, which started on Ash Wednesday, when people give up a vice for the 40 days of the Christian festival.

And the youngsters showed off their maths skills as they counted, measured and weighed their ingredients to make the perfect recipe.

Katie Southern, manager of the nursery on St Annes Road East, said: “The children celebrated and learned about Shrove Tuesday.

“They have enjoyed learning how to make pancakes and have taken part in pancake races.

“Throughout the activities the children developed their mathematical skills by counting out and measuring ingredients into the bowl.”

Children learned about where their food comes from – from eggs laid by chickens, to milk from cows, and flour and sugar being harvested from farms.

And the youngsters tried out different flavours, trying sour lemon or sweet sugar on their pancakes.

Miss Southern added: “We also discussed healthy eating and the importance of a healthy balanced diet.”
