Re-visit last week’s story about the Chinese New Year.
There were 12 animals in the story. Can you draw them all and place them into the correct order they entered the water at the start of the race? Or, tell them to your adult.
Chinese New Year celebrations
Chinese New Year is a time when Chinese families in China, the UK and around the world, get together to celebrate. They put up lights outside their homes. It is also a special time to remember members of the family who have died. In the days coming up to New Year, every family buys presents, decorations, food, new clothes and people have their hair cut. Houses are cleaned from top to bottom. The aim is to sweep out any bad luck from the old year and clear the way for good luck. However, it is bad luck to clean on New Year’s Day itself.
For a few minutes, go and tidy an area (bedroom, toybox, book shelf etc).
Pretend you are preparing for New Year’s celebrations, how do you feel?
When there is a special occasion at your house e.g. Divali/birthday, does your family do anything differently? E.g. decorations, cooking, cleaning, clothes, etc.
What celebrations can you think of?
What do you like best about celebrations you take part in?
How does it feel to celebrate a special time/event?
Can you think of some celebrations you know about?
Make an invitation to a celebration of your choice. On your invitation add, the name of the guest, the type of celebration (it could be a real celebration you like or you could make one up), address, date and time.
Remember RED is used as it represents good luck.
Once completed upload onto Tapestry as we would love to see your great designs.
