"The kids liked all the colours of Chinese culture and they chose that for the theme."
Mum Sarah Jeynes, 37, of St Nicholas Drive, Grimsby, said: "I can see that the children are really enjoying what they are learning about.
"My daughter has been telling me all about the story of the Chinese new year. We get invited in once a term and it is nice to see what the kids are up to – and they like having their mummies and daddies here, too."
Her five-year-old daughter, Milly, said: "This year is the year of the rat.
"I've never tried Chinese food before, but I'm looking forward to eating noodles."
