Happy Chinese New Year 2022!

We have had great fun learning about Chinese New Year. It is also called Lunar New Year. It is celebrated in January or February in many countries around the world.

We  have learnt to dragon dance, which is an important part of the Chinese New Year celebrations. Along with lion dances, they are often the highlight of Chinese New Year parades.

We made money packets to give to each other.

We got to look at some of the things people use to decorate their homes with.

The best bit though, was us getting to taste some Chinese food at our very own Chinese restaurant. We even tried to use chopsticks!


We also learnt about how each year a Chinese zodiac animal is the symbol for the year, and this year it is the year of the Tiger.

The 12 Chinese zodiac animals are: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.

We listened to the ‘Zodiac story’  and then in our PE lesson we pretended we were the animals racing.  We had to run and pretend to swim though.
