Chinese New Year Workshop Material (Xiaoman Sun)

This resource has been created by Xiaoman Sun, from Seven Kings High School in the UK.

In her school, Sun has 5 workshops for her Year 7 & 8 students to decorate the school assembly hall and surrounding areas in preparation for the Chinese New Year. The workshops are:

1.Giant Painting for Assembly Hall
2. Making Chinese Lanterns
3. Chinese Origami
4. Design Year of Tiger Posters
5. Chinese Calligraphy experience-Chinese Lucky Symbols & write down students' Chinese name

Sun's 'action plan' is based on a 2 week programme, though this could obviously be adjusted depending on how much time you have available.

These activities would certainly work well with KS2/primary children too.
