Chinese New Year

Primary school resources to support the teaching of Chinese New Year.

Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival in China, is China’s most important traditional festival. It is also the most important celebration for Chinese families all over the world.

The Chinese animal zodiac is a repeating cycle of 12 years, with each year being represented by an animal. Traditionally these zodiac animals were used to date the years.

Chinese people believe that a good start to the year will lead to a lucky year.

This collection of artefacts makes a fabulous colourful and informative display.

The collection not only contains items used during the Chinese New Year celebration but also contains several Feng Shui items used in homes at all times of year. (Feng Shui is an Ancient Chinese traditional practice which claims to use energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environment).
