рассказ детей об А. Милне
Alan Alexander Milne
Alan Alexander Milne ( (18 January 1882 – 31 January 1956) was an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various children's poems. Milne was a noted writer, primarily as a playwright, before the huge success of Pooh overshadowed all his previous work. A. A. Milne was born in Kilburn, London, England to parents John Vine Milne and Sarah Maria. Milne attended Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge where he studied on a mathematics scholarship. Milne worked as an assistant editor in the leading British humour magazine “Punch”. Milne joined the British Army in World War I and served as an officer in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. Alan married Dorothy "Daphne" in 1913, and their only son, Christopher Robin Milne, was born in 1920. Milne is most famous for his two Pooh books about a boy named Christopher Robin, after his son, and various characters inspired by his son's stuffed animals, most notably the bear named Winnie-the-Pooh. Christopher Robin's bear, originally named "Edward", was renamed "Winnie-the-Pooh" after a Canadian black bear named Winnie (after Winnipeg) left to London Zoo during the war. E. H. Shepard illustrated the original Pooh books, using his own son's teddy as the model. Christopher Robin Milne's own toys are now under glass in New York. Winnie-the-Pooh was published in 1926, followed by ‘The House at Pooh Corner’ in 1928. A second collection of nursery rhymes, “Now We Are Six”, was published in 1927. All three books were illustrated by E. H. Shepard. Milne also published four plays in this period. After Milne's death, his widow sold the rights to the Pooh characters to the Walt Disney Company, which has made a number of Pooh cartoon movies.

c) Ознакомительное чтение текста
Учитель: Now we will read the text about Winnie-the-Pooh. Read it and complete the task. ( Учитель раздает детям карточки с текстом и заданием к нему)
When Christopher Milne grew up he often had to answer questions about himself when he was a child, and about his toys.
He remembered that Pooh was his parents’ present and the oldest, only a year younger than Christopher himself, and the most cheerful of them. He was Christopher’s favourite toy and companion. It was Pooh to whom the little boy said “Good night” before falling asleep. Eeyor ,too, was a present. With time his neck had gone down and this had given him his sad and gloomy look.
Piglet was a present from a neighbour who lived close by.
Rabbit was invented. At first he was just the owner of the hole in which Pooh got stuck and struggled to get free. Every child remembers how once Pooh was walking through the forest humming to himself
Tiddle- idle, tiddle- idle,
Tiddle- idle, tiddle- idle,
When he saw a hole, found out that Rabbit was in and pushed his way through the hole, the two had a bite after which Pooh could not climb out of the hole, through he pulled with his front paws and pushed with his back paws as hard as he could. For a long week Pooh had to stay in the hole- and have no meals: not a bowl of honey, not even a mouthful of condensed milk – and only when he got thinner Christopher Robin, Rabbit and Rabbit’s friends and relations pulled Pooh out of the “tight place”.
Both Kanga and Tigger arrived later, they were presents from Christopher’s parents carefully chosen so that they could make new literary characters. As A. A. Milne said, “… you only had to look at them to see at once that Tigger was bouncy, Eeyore was gloomy and Piglet was squeaky.”
Pooh’s house was inside an old walnut tree. The tree was hollow inside and it was easy to climb in through a big opening in the trunk. It was the perfect tree house for a five-year-old. This was where Christopher and Pooh played their quiet, happy games together.

a) Рассказ детей о Ньютоне
Учитель: Listen carefully to your classmates as then you will have to complete the task.
Newton, Sir Isaac (1642-1727)
Newton, Sir Isaac (1642-1727), English natural philosopher, generally regarded as the most original and influential theorist in the history of science. Isaac Newton was born on Christmas day 1642 (4 January 1643, New Style) in Woolsthorpe, a hamlet near Grantham in Lincolnshire. When he was barely three years old Newton's mother, Hanna (Ayscough), placed her first born with his grandmother in order to remarry and raise a second family with Barnabas Smith, a wealthy rector from nearby North Witham.But the turning point in Newton's life came in June 1661 when he left Woolsthorpe for Cambridge University. Here Newton entered a new world, one he could eventually call his own.In 1665 Newton took his bachelor's degree at Cambridge without honors or distinction. Since the university was closed for the next two years because of plague, Newton returned to Woolsthorpe in midyear. There, in the following 18 months, he made a series of original contributions to science. In mathematics Newton conceived his 'method of fluxions' (infinitesimal calculus), laid the foundations for his theory of light and color, and achieved significant insight into the problem of planetary motion, insights that eventually led to the publication of his Principia (1687). In 1666, as tradition has it, Newton observed the fall of an apple in his garden at Woolsthorpe, later recalling, 'In the same year I began to think of gravity extending to the orb of the Moon.' Newton's memory was not accurate. In fact, all evidence suggests that the concept of universal gravitation did not spring full-blown from Newton's head in 1666 but was nearly 20 years in gestation.

William Hogarth (10 November, 1697 – 26 October, 1764) was a major English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic and editorial cartoonist. Hogarth was born and lived at Bartholomew Close in London on 10 November 1697 to Richard Hogarth, a poor Latin school teacher and textbook writer, and Anne Gibbons. His work ranged from excellent realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called "modern moral subjects". One of his first works was called “A Rake’s progress”. One of his most moralistic pictures is“Beer Street and Gin Lane”, it shows the drunk citizens of a small dirty town. Hogarth wanted to show the consequences of alcoholism in such a way.
