Students from Ian Mikardo High School in Tower Hamlets designed and created their own dragon to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Headteacher Claire Lillis led a procession of the dragon through the school building and grounds – and even down a slide.

In classes students explored the signs of the Chinese zodiac and found out about the characteristics that relate to the year of their birth.

Ms Lillis said: “It was an opportunity for students to think about who they are in a mythical way, as well as to have a lot of fun.”
