According to the Chinese lunar calendar, on 16 February 2018 we’ll be entering the year of the dog.
To help you celebrate and explore Chinese culture and language with your primary pupils, the British Council has produced a free year of the dog education pack.
The pack, prepared with the support of IOE Confucius Institute for Schools, includes an assembly plan, activity and information sheets, and various suggestions to get creative in the classroom (for example, making clag dogs, reading Chinese children's letters or cooking Chinese dumplings). Download your copy of the pack (available in English and Welsh).
