I. Preparation

1)Greeting. Introducing the topic.

The lesson starts with a piece of video(A song of Mary Poppins from the old English film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zy7XEMeBROQ)

Then a teacher comes into the classroom dressed up like Mary Poppins.

T:Hello,dear friends! Today I’m not your teacher. I’m Mary Poppins. Do you remember me? I’m the main character of the book by Pamela Lyndon Travers. And I’ve just come back from my summer vacations. And I’ve got a compass. And what is it for?

(the pupils give their ideas)

II. The main part.

T:This little box can take us round the world! Once we travelled with Mike and Jane…With the help of it we’ll get to different places where you can go during your summer holidays. Let’s turn it and count to five all together.(The pupils count and he teacher switches on another video about seaside


And it’s on while the pupils are answering teacher’s questions and making the mind-map

T. Where are we now? Right you are! At the seaside! And what can we do at the seaside?(The pupils give their ideas and the teacher draws the mind-map on the blackboard)

-to swim in the sea

-to sunbathe

-to go diving

-to go windsurfing

-to go sailing

-to make sand castles

-to go on excursions

-to visit the places of interest

-to walk along the beach

-to feed the seagulls etc.

T:O.K.Let’s turn our compass and count to five.(Another episode is about mountains.


T:Where are we now? Right, in the mountains. And what can we do there?

-climb the mountains

-to enjoy the views/nature

-to go hiking

-to swim in the mountain lake

-to go rafting along the mountain river etc.

And in such a way we turn our compass ,switch on the video and get to the village and abroad or to a big city. When the mind map is ready the pupils in pairs ask and answer the questions “Where did you go this summer? What did you see there? What did you do there?Did you enjoy your summer holidays?”using Past Simple.

T:Well and I’ve got a friend Bert, you saw him at the beginning of our lesson, we were singing and dancing together. He has just come from his vacations too. Let’s phone him in the Skype.(The sound of Skype ringing… and we listen to “Bert’s” story about summer rest, whether downloaded from the Internet or read and recorded by some senior pupil, who is good at reading)

T:Bert’s story was very interesting and we want to find out more details about his rest, don’t we? We’ve got a lot of questions, but Bert is a very busy person, you know ,he draws pictures on the pavement. So, he’s always short of time. But we can write our questions down and send them to him by e-mail. You’ll do it at home. I think Bert will be glad to receive your letters. Here’s his e-mail(the teacher gives his /her address and in such a way the home task will be done and sent on her e-mail)
