Shotley Bridge Nursery School celebrates Chinese New Year


Laura Bowery, Director at Shotley Bridge Nursery School, wanted to share with us how her nursery celebrated Chinese culture with the children recently: 

Today the staff and children from Shotley Bridge Nursery School visited The Pavilion at Iveston to celebrate Chinese New Year.

It was a brilliant opportunity for the children to experience some Chinese food and learn about a different cultural celebration. They had made a traditional dragon-lion and performed a lion dance for staff at the restaurant.

The Pavilion very kindly organised a room for the children to sample some traditional Chinese cuisine and they received miniature gold and red sheep as a gift to recognise the Year of the Sheep. The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit and exchanged red envelopes with staff – a traditional custom at this time of year.
