Pupils at one West Berkshire school have been cooking up a treat for Pancake Day this week.

This year Shrove Tuesday coincided with Beenham Primary School's bushcraft sessions, which meant the young pupils enjoyed making the traditional treats on an open fire outside of the usual classroom setting.

The school held two sessions - one for reception pupils and one for years 1 and 2 - on Tuesday morning, where children were able to make, cook and flip their tasty treats.

They were then able to chose from a host of yummy toppings - including fruit, sugar and chocolate sauce - before eating their delicious creations.

Headteacher, Amy Donnelly, said: "We were fortunate that our Bushcraft sessions fell on Shrove Tuesday this year.

"This week they were able to help with the making and cooking of the pancakes on the open fire before choosing a variety of toppings to enjoy.

"The children in reception class have been reading the much-loved book 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' and have learned about the meaning behind Shrove Tuesday both in this country and other countries around the world."

Children in reception, year 1 and year 2 have been taking part in weekly sessions with Small Fires, Big Adventures since the start of the school year in September.

They are also joined by children from Beenham Pre-School for the outdoor learning sessions.
