Mardi Gras - Celebrating Shrove Tuesday

We have been learning about the meaning and history of Shrove Tuesday and how it is celebrated around the world. This inspired our own 'Carnival' afternoon. We made carnival masks, bead necklaces and practised our carnival singing before trying to break into our carnival pinata.
We have also thought about what we might give up for lent!
