Chinese New Year 2020 in Mrs Mc Guirk’s Room

Chinese New Year or ‘Spring Festival’ is China’s most important festival and holiday time. Chinese New Year 2020 is celebrated between 25th of January and 4th of February 2020  and celebrates the year of the Rat.

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 completed various teacher designed activities around the theme of the Chinese New Year!

To complete the lessons on the Chinese New Year, the children completed lovely dragon masks to celebrate the occasion!
