That's Oxford TV and Snowflake Books visit Lewknor Primary School
8th February 2016
Xin Nian Kuai Le or Happy New Year as today, Monday 8th February, marks the start of the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Monkey.
To celebrate, Lewknor Primary School had two special guests, Su Yen Hu and Lihui Wang, visit the Upper Junior Class to tell the children all about Chinese New Year traditions. The women, who have written several books for children, even brought some some firecrackers and gifts for the pupils, which were placed in special red Chinese envelopes. The children got the opportunity to sample Chinese cuisine, listen to a traditional Chinese story and learn some Mandarin. They had fun making Chinese lanterns, fans and monkeys as well as learning how to write and paint Chinese characters.
That’s Oxford TV filmed the event, which was screened on 8th February at 5pm and can be viewed on their YouTube channel by clicking on the link at the top of this page.
