Children from a Bury St Edmunds primary school enjoyed a meal at a restaurant as part of a week of learning about the Chinese new year.
Pupils from Howard Community Primary School visited 513 Oriental Buffet in the town centre after studying Chinese culture ahead of the new year, which begins on February 16.
A total of 60 children, from nursery to Year 6, and 22 staff and parents made the journey from the Beard Road school to the Chinese restaurant by public transport.
The Year 6 children acted as waiters for the younger children at the meal, which was subsidised by the restaurant.
Craig Smith, early years teacher at Howard Community School, said: “We’ve been immersing ourselves in Chinese culture, studying Chinese letters and making dragons.
