Chinese New Year starts on the 8th of February but we learned about Chinese New Year on the 9th of February with Mrs Zhang. There is a dragon called Nian which means year. We made a Chinese zodiac. A Chinese zodiac is a circle divided in twelve sections. There is an animal in every section. On the Chinese zodiac this year is the monkey year.On Chinese new year Chinese people hang up their lanterns and then they admire the lanterns.
