This selection of Chinese New Year themed activities comprises five hour-long lessons.
The lessons start with an introduction to Chinese culture and traditions, linked to the New Year celebrations. A following English lesson looks at the different character traits of the animals of the Chinese Zodiac, with the children writing a description about a fictitious person born under a particular animal zodiac sign.
A third lesson sees children using tangrams, a type of Chinese mathematical puzzle, to construct pictures.
The final two lessons introduce children to the Chinese Lantern Festival, where they construct a lantern and write riddles to be placed inside them
