Chinese New Year celebrations came to Oakfield First School.
New teacher Charlotte Babes, who has lived in China, brought a real 'dragon' and a number of authentic costumes back with her.
Now the school in Imperial Road, Windsor, has its own China Club, where pupils learn about the culture and customs of the country.
This week was special as Chinese New Year dawned.
It began in assembly today when the 12-foot dragon brought back by Mrs Babes was brought to life by the children, using sticks to manipulate the body and the fiery red head.
Not to be outdone, the children had a go at making their own dragon out of boxes and gold glitter.
Some pupils got to wear the Chinese costumes brought back by Mrs Babes.
