Reception class children at Stapleford Abbotts Primary Academy celebrated Chinese New Year.
They made dragon masks, good luck money envelopes and lanterns, and practiced writing Chinese symbols.
They also tasted noodles and prawn crackers for a special snack and performed a dragon dance.
Class teacher Bethan Williams said: "The children had a fantastic day and were keen to learn all about the traditions and customs of Chinese New Year."
