Simnel cakes are associated with Mother’s Day. During Lent, people did not eat sweet foods, rich foods or meat. However, the fast was lifted slightly on Mothering Sunday and many people prepared a Simnel cake to eat with their family on this day.
All the children got very creative and made Mothers Day cards to take home for their mummies. We also then had a Mothers Day Tea party where some of the children mummies came along and joined us. The children loved their parent joining for them tea and showing them all they things they do at nursery.
