Highams Park children create snake for Chinese New Year

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Children create snake for Chinese New Year Children create snake for Chinese New Year

A giant snake was created by childen to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Pupils at Selwyn Primary School in Cavendish Road, Highams Park, celebrated the Year of the Snake by creating a 15ft version made out of willow with tissue paper scales.

The children then decorated it with Chinese patterns.

It was created with the help of London artist Ben Baker and will be shown at a school assembly on Thursday.

Teacher Lauren Munding said: “It’s been a good opportunity for the children to learn about another culture, they have really enjoyed being part of this ambitious art project.”

Are you really as daft as you make out?

You put a similar "coincidence" comment on another report about a school where snakes were brought in.

There's no coincidence. They are making and looking at snakes because it's the Year of the Snake.

I'm sure you must know that - so your comments just make you look stupid.

Sorry just read it again and I did wonder what came first the horse or the cart but can see it was the snake for the Snake New year. Thanks for pointing this out and may I wish you a Happy Valentines Day on the 14th if we do not speak till then.
