Year of the Horse

The Chinese Spring Festival and Chinese New Year celebrations begin on 31 January, when according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, we will enter the Year of the Horse.

Our education pack for UK primary schools educates young people about the world around them and gives them an understanding of other countries and cultures in preparation for life as global citizens.
Familiarity with China and Chinese will become increasingly important for the UK’s prosperity. Prime Minister David Cameron made this clear during his recent visit to China, when he pledged to double the number of Mandarin learners in the UK.
Prepared with input from the IOE Confucius Institute for Schools, these resources help pupils and teachers celebrate on the day and explore Chinese culture and language throughout the year.
