Greetings from The Gambia!

We have been learning all about Lent and Pancake day! 


Greetings from the gambia

Lent is the forty days (not counting Sundays) before Easter. This is the time of year in England when the days begin to get longer with the coming of Spring.

Lent begins the day after Pancake Day. The last week of Lent begins with Palm Sunday, which celebrates the day Jesus entered Jerusalem and the people lay down palms at his feet.


Greetings from the gambia

Lent is 40 days to mark Jesus fasting in the desert. This is the time of year in England when the days begin to get longer with the coming of Spring.

During Lent Christians used to fast (give up food) but nowadays people try to give up something like chocolate. Lent is a time when Christians remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert without food


Greetings from the gambia

The origins of pancake day and eating pancakes arose from Christians observing lent wanting to use up all the rich foods in their cupboards before Lent started. During Lent eggs, sugar and butter were not allowed so these ingredients were used to make pancakes.
