CHILDREN at St Winefride’s Primary School celebrated Chinese New Year with a special assembly.

Each class shared what they had learned about the festival on Tuesday, February 12.

Youngsters in the foundation class had learned how to say ‘hello’ in Chinese and shared a special song.

They had also made a dragon and performed a dance.

Year 1 children at the Little Neston school learned about the legend of how the Chinese zodiac animals were chosen and created paintings of these animals.

Year 2 youngsters made snake mobiles and spoke about the animals from the zodiac, while Year 3 had made red envelopes, which Chinese children receive at New Year, and enjoyed a Chinese food tasting session.

Year 4 made willow plates with intricate drawings on and Year 5 made fans bearing Chinese symbols.

Year 6 wrote non-chronological reports, made animal masks for the year in which they were born and carried out some Chinese multiplication.
