Pancake Day fun in Brentwood

Children at a Warley school had fun in the traditional way to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.

Pupils at the Ursuline Preparatory School, Great Ropers Lane, marked the first day of Lent with inter-house pancake races.

The children had to run the length of the playground, tossing their team-coloured pancake midway. Older children helped the younger ones.

Teaching assistant Jan West said: “There was fierce competition between the four houses, but eventually St David’s, the yellow team, were announced the overall winner.”
