1. Warming up
Hallo, dear children. I’m very glad to see you. I’m going to be your teacher today. My name is… First we are going to warm up a little with the ball. I’ll throw you the ball and ask a question. Catch the ball, please, and throw it back to me with your answer.

2. Phonetic drill
You know that you should pronounce English sounds correctly. Now we’ll practice the sound
It is something between Russian «э» and «а». Open your mouth wide and say “black, cat, sat, mat, rat” Repeat the rhyme after me:
A black cat
Sat on a mat
And ate a fat rat.

Step, step, clap, clap (2)
Nod you head and turn around
And clap, clap, clap
Hands up – clap, clap
Hands down – clap, clap
Nod you head and turn around
And clap, clap, clap
5. British Holidays (games and competitions)
By the way, children, what’s the date today? Right, it’s the 30th of October today. And what holiday will British people celebrate tomorrow? That’s right – Halloween. And who knows the main and the most beautiful holiday of a year? Certainly- it’s Christmas. So, now we’re going to speak about the two very popular holidays in Great Britain – Christmas and Halloween. Let’s play interesting games and have exciting competitions.
1) Do you know these words?
I’d like to divide your group into two equal teams as we’re going to have a competition. The first team will be called “Christmas” and the second – “Halloween”. Look at the screen, please. (Slide 8) You can see the words. The words from the column “Christmas” are for Christmas team and the column “Halloween” is for Halloween team. You are going to come up to the blackboard by one in turn and write one of the words from your column in Russian. Your team will win if you write all the words from your column first.
2) Match the holidays with the pictures: (slide 9)
Your next task is to match the pictures with the two holidays.
3) Making up stories.
Every team gets a story cut into lines. (Приложение 2) Your task is to connect the lines in the right order and to make up the story. Then you’ll answer my questions to your stories.
Questions to the story “Halloween”:
1) When do English people celebrate Halloween?
2) What is the symbol of Halloween?
3) How do children make lanterns?
4) What are the symbolic colours of Halloween?
5) Why do children visit houses?
6) What do children do if people don’t treat them?

6) Why do they hang their stockings?
6. Drawing competition
Each team will get one balloon. The team “Christmas” will draw Santa Claus on their balloon and the team “Halloween” will draw Jack-o-lantern. You’ll do it in turn. Every member of the teams can draw only one element on the balloon (e.g. a nose or one eye) and then passes the felt pen to another pupil.
(As the lesson is planned for a group of unknown pupils, two more games are given in the Presentation (slides 10, 11) in case there is time left).
Jingle, bells (slide 12)
I’m sure you all know a very popular English Christmas song “Jingle, bells”. Let’s sing it together.
