THERE was music, dancing and even a dragon as pre-school children in Ledbury celebrated Chinese New Year.

Youngsters at Busy Bees pre-school took part in various activities, including making their own Chinese dragon using a sheet and junk modelling materials.

Once it was complete they danced with it outside in the pre-school garden, using musical instruments to imitate the sound of its roar.

Children also dressed in traditional Chinese costumes, made lanterns and fans and practised Chinese writing.

Manager Emma Davis said: "The subject has really captured the children's interests and provided us with some wonderful learning opportunities."
