The Origin of the
Chinese Zodiac

Rochester Mall
9.00am – 11.00am



Long long ago, there was no method for calculating time in months and years, until one day a celestial being, Emperor Yu Huang, had an idea. He hosted a fantastic event that involved all the creatures of the world taking part in a long and dangerous race. The animals gathered, the excitement rose, the race began, and eventually 12 animals were chosen. Who was victorious? Which animals came first? Can you name all 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac?

Combining dance forms, calligraphy, ink-painting, songs and fairy tales, this highly creative holiday programme for kindergarten students immerses them deeply in the rich traditions of Chinese culture. Language in action stimulates the children’s interest and passion to learn, as they absorb new vocabulary and build listening, comprehension and speaking skills.
