The children and staff at Kiddi Caru Plympton enjoyed celebrating the Chinese New Year.
The traditional Chinese calendar is organised around the movements of the moon, with the new year usually falling between January 21 and February 20.
This year, Chinese New Year will be celebrated across the world on Saturday January 28 and according to the Chinese Zodiac 2017 will be the year of the Rooster.
As part of the celebrations the children enjoyed noodle art work, Chinese food tasting, making Chinese lanterns, Rooster mask making, chop stick and noodle play and made Chinese and Rooster hats.
Tracey Callan, Nursery Manager, said: “We love to celebrate lots of diverse festivals from all over the world as part of our inclusive activities and also so that children learn to embrace lots of different cultures. Chinese New Year is a fabulous festival and one that we look forward to every year. It is one of the most visually stunning festivals and I really enjoyed looking at the displays that were created by the children.”
