Chinese New Year 2019 in Mrs Mc Guirk’s Room

Chinese New Year or ‘Spring Festival’ is China’s most important festival and holiday time. Chinese New Year 2019 falls on Tuesday February 5th 2019, beginning the year of the Pig. China’s public holiday will be February 4th 2019. 

The children have been busy learning about the Chinese New Year at school.  They have been learning about the history of the Chinese New Year, the traditions and how it is celebrated. They also learned about what animal year they were born in and how that animal is supposed to mean certain things about their personality.  The children put all their knowledge on paper when they did some co-operative group work and created some fantastic projects!

Have a look below at a sample of some of the work the children got up to!
