Pupils learn about Chinese New Year

Pupils from Newbarns Primary and Nursery School have been learning all about Chinese New Year this week.

They cooked a delicious egg fried rice for Deputy Headteacher Victoria Fitzgibbons to sample and told her all about the recipe.

Teaching Assistant Jin Caine showed the Year 1 pupils how to create the dish an explained why food is central to the celebrations.

“Rice and noodles are symbols of longevity and we gather as a family at Chinese New Year and have a big banquet as it is all about being together. The children have also been learning the Chinese Zodiac and how we gift bright red envelopes to wish our loved ones luck in the year ahead. ”

Mrs Fitzgibbons’ verdict on the fried rice – which included peas, peppers and pineapple – was ‘delicious’.

Well done Year 1!
