More than 100 pupils at Long Clawson Primary School celebrated Chinese New Year by taking part in an oriental-themed dance workshop.

The younger children also made hats and other Chinese objects to mark the occasion.

School administrator Fiona Hart said: “The whole school took part in the dance workshop and they all seemed to enjoy it. The children wore something red to ward off evil spirits. They also learned about the animals which are attached to different Chinese years and found out which animal year members of staff were born in.”
