THE Chinese year of the dragon caught the imagination of children at a St Helen’s nursery recently.
Staff and children at Laton Ash Nursery in Laton Road dressed up in traditional costume on Monday to celebrate Chinese New Year. The children had a chance to try Chinese foods such as noodles.
They made Paddy hats and also had to the chance to dance using ribbons and parasols.
Staff member Zoe Boyd said: “We have a Chinese child who has been teaching us all to say happy new year in Chinese and been telling the children the story of Nian the beast which has also been fascinating.”
