Chinese New Year (CNY)

We've had a great few days in preparation for Chinese New Year. We have started to write poems and enjoyed the festivities put on around school such as assemblies and performances. The senior school entertained us with games from China and we watched the traditional lion dance.
Here is an example of the Chinese New Year poems we are writing which has been made into a poster. We are continuing our poem writing with the use of similes and metaphors in rhyming couplets which will be turned into performance poems.
We've really enjoyed the festivities as we welcome in the Year of the Horse! Do you celebrate Chinese New Year, also called Lunar New Year? What are you celebrating around this time of year? What is your favourite poem? Do you have some poems you'd like to share with us?
