Children go oriental to celebrate Chinese New Year

CHILDREN have been exploring a new culture with an oriental theme to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Youngster’s from Saint Felix School’s Dragons Nursery in Southwold have been dressing in traditional Chinese clothing and eating noodles and prawn crackers while learning how to use chop sticks.

The children, aged three to four, also found out what Chinese animal they were according to the year they were born.

They also sang Chinese songs, researched Chinese writing and words, and even got the chance to dress up as a Chinese dragon.

To complete the oriental theme, traditional lanterns and decorations were put up around the nursery.
