Dragon studies for international week

DRAGONS, lanterns and authentic Chinese food were all part of a day’s studies at one Portishead school.

Pupils at St Peter’s Primary School marked the Chinese year of the dragon by making models of the creature and investigating Chinese customs.

Class teacher and deputy head Janine Ashman said: “Our topic on China was launched to coincide with the school’s international week, aimed at helping pupils appreciate different cultures and traditions, enhancing their understanding and respect for others.”
