Chinese New Year at Holy Apostles Pre-School

chinese new year

At Pre-School we celebrated the Chinese New Year (also known as the Lunar New Year) alongside one of our families. They were kind enough to send in some of the decorations they use at home and told us about some of their traditions; we really enjoyed learning about something new!

We learnt that before the New Year, families we celebrate the Lunar New Year clean their entire house to clear out the old and invite in the new. We learnt about special food that is eaten over the New Year, as well as special dances. We learnt that lots of people put fruit trees or branches from fruit trees with blossom on in their homes to bring them good fortune.

To celebrate at Pre-School, we created a lovely display of all the things that were brought in, and made our own decorative lanterns and fire-breathing dragons!
