A village school that prides itself on learning about different world cultures and traditions celebrated the Chinese New Year.

Children at Barley School saw in the Chinese Year of the Ox with a range of activities which allowed them to experience different types of food.

The younger pupils cooked Chinese noodles to eat as their morning snack and even had a go at eating them with chopsticks. Older children designed and decorated their own willow pattern plates and made models of a Chinese ox and paper dragons.

Chinese stories were told and traditional Chinese red envelopes containing 50p for each pupil were hidden around the playground for a school treasure hunt.

Headteacher Julie Price said: "It's important for our children to understand other cultures and their celebrations.
