Best of NTC: Easter Special

Teaching tip

The Easter Special in our Did you know? series is full of information about UK events leading up to Easter starting from Shrove Tuesday up to Easter Monday. Enjoy another Best of Network Teachers’ Club


As its name suggests, Pancake Tuesday (or Shrove Tuesday) in the UK is a day for eating pancakes. There are no big fancy dress parties or processions in the UK, just pancakes traditionally eaten with sugar and lemon. There are some races though, like the famous Olney Pancake Race. Click on the left button below and you’ll get to our Easter Special PDF which contains a video link to the Olney Pancake Race.

Mothering Sunday is another event that falls in the period before Easter. It is always on the fourth Sunday of Lent and so this year it’s on 15th March. Our Easter Special PDF includes a recipe for Simnel cake which was often eaten on Mothering Sunday.

Do you fancy information about something quirkier – then what about the World Coal Carrying Championship on Easter Monday? Again, you’ll find more details in our Easter Special PDF when you click on the left button below.
