Mother's Day

Home » News » Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a special day honouring mothers and it's celebrated in many countries throughout the world. It is also known as Mothering Sunday in the UK.
During the Middle Ages, the custom developed of allowing people who had moved away from where they grew up to come back to visit their home or 'mother' churches, and their mothers, on the fourth Sunday of the Christian festival of Lent.

At the time, it wasn't uncommon for children to leave home to work when they were as young as 10 years old, so this was an opportunity for families to meet up again.

This became Mothering Sunday in Britain. As the dates of Lent vary each year, so does the date of Mothering Sunday.

The children in Pearl Class honoured their own Super Mums!
