Chinese New Year celebrated by pupils at Berrow Primary School

Pupils at Berrow Pre-School and the reception class at Berrow have been celebrating Chinese New Year this week.

Youngsters from the foundation stage learnedall about the colourful traditions and enjoyed a Chinese banquet.

The children all tried eating a selection of rice, noodles, sauce and spring rolls using chop sticks.

All of the children had a chance to look at Chinese letters and characters and tried to paint them, as well as learning the action song Gung Hay Fat Choy. They also made Chinese-style items such as lucky flowers, paper chains and hats.

Head teacher Heather Hector told "At Berrow Pre-School and Primary School there is a great tradition of embracing world cultures and traditions, as well as local cultures and customs."

"We feel that it gives the children a greater understanding of the world at large and by learning in focus weeks such as this it really helps to give the children a more full understanding and tolerance."
