Chinese New Year

Here you will find a collection of primary teaching resources ideal to use during your Chinese New Year celebrations. This section is updated every year to reflect the relevant animal of the Chinese zodiac and has a variety of resources that can be used for Chinese New Year themed games, displays and activities. We have many resources (like our Chinese New Year Topic CardsChinese New Year Photo Pack and Mandarin / Chinese Number Track) that are universal and can be used every year. Others are specific to a particular animal of the Chinese zodiac.

Please note that 2016 is the year of the Monkey. Chinese New Year will be celebrated on Monday the 8th of February 2016.

This site provides brilliant EYFS resources that I regularly use in my early years setting. All the material is bright and colourful and is great to use as part of displays. My class especially like the Elmer the Elephant section!

Wonderful resources….particularly love all the new planning documents, the story resources and the number rhymes.

ELHQ is definitely my first stop for teaching resources for my KS1 class, as they have such a varied choice and the quality of their pictures is always amazing!

I love all the KS1 teaching resources from ELHQ and use them all the time at school (and at home!). The role-play section is a particular favourite, especially all the pirate related stuff.
