According to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, we enter the Year of the Ox on 12 February 2021.

These education resources contain information and activities to help teachers and pupils learn more about this important spring festival and explore Chinese culture. Your pupils can read a version of the traditional story of the New Year Race, create shadow puppets of the main characters and make a traditional Chinese lantern.

These resources are suitable for primary years and adaptable for early secondary years and older.

These resources were created with the support of the UCL IOE Confucius Institute for Schools.

We’re always thrilled to see photos and videos of you using resources in your school. Share and tag us on our British Council Schools Facebook and Twitter channels using #YearOfTheOx.
