Pancake day is traditionally the day when you empty your larder before the lean times of Lent.

A great D&T challenge would be to make a pancake tossing machine. Students need to toss a "pancake" with an 8cm/3in diameter (a piece of card cut to size!). Points could be awarded like in a diving competition with the other children holding up scores for degree of difficulty, number of turns and whether it landed back in the "pan".

You could also hold that other great Shrove Tuesday favourite, a pancake race. Attach plasticine pancakes to several Roamers and plot a course for the Roamers to travel. The winner is the first Roamer past the post complete with pancake.
