Essex pupils take on the Chinese lantern challenge
CHILDREN at Takeley Primary School celebrated the Chinese New Year this week by taking part in a paper lantern competition.
The Chinese New Year starts with the New Moon on the first day of the New Year, which this year is today (February 3), and ends on the full moon 15 days later.
As part of the celebrations Chinese children take part in a Lantern Festival, known in Chinese as the Yuan Xiao Festival.
The children at the school were challenged by David Wilson Homes Eastern to make traditional paper lanterns with the best lanterns winning a prize.
Teacher Mrs Chamberlain said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the activity and learning about the Chinese New Year.
