Year of the Pig education pack

According to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, we enter the Year of the Pig on 5 February 2019. This education pack for primary schools contains information and activities to help teachers and pupils learn more about this important Spring Festival and explore Chinese language and culture.

Your pupils can read a traditional story to find out how Pigsy became the companion of the Monkey King, and learn how Chinese children refer to animals and animal sounds by singing Old Macdonald’s Farm in Chinese.

For these and other activities, visit the British Council website and download the resource pack.
