I did a Chinese New Year assembly with my Year 1/2 class last year. We looked at the traditions and the children dressed up as the 12 animals and re-told the story of the race. Because it was an assembly where parents/governors and other members of the community could attend we made a Chinese restaurant and had Chinese snacks afterwards (fortune cookies, prawn crackers, spring rolls etc- cheap enough to buy in lidl and aldi!!) I have still got my assembly script if you would like to see it. I can e-mail it to you if you would like.
