Snakes alive, it’s Chinese New Year!
A SPECIAL day of crafts and food tasting was held at Steyning Primary School last Wednesday to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Pupils in reception, year one and year two were asked to wear something red but some chidlren came to school in full Chinese dress, wearing pretty kimonos and mandarin tops.
It became the Chinese year of the snake on Sunday, February 10, so the children made some slithery snakes as part of their craft projects.
Key stage one leader Cara Provost said they also made Chinese lanterns, tried some Chinese ribbon dancing and were given some Chinese food to taste.
Chinese boarders at Steyning Grammar School had made the children some Chinese dragons for their dance, too.
Early years leader Ann-Marie Allen said: “The day finished with a big Chinese food tasting afternoon, courtesy of the Bramber Dragon Chinese Restaurant, Steyning.
“They delivered a small range of food for all the children to try. The children also shared what they had made and learned throughout the day.”
The children tried chop suey, chow mein, egg fried rice, prawn crackers and noodles.
