Planning of the lesson.
T: Hello, boy and girls. Glad to see you. Sit down, please. Today we have a very interesting lesson. There are a lot of materials and I hope you’ll be active and attentive at the lesson.
T: But, to begin with let’s look at the blackboard! Here is the poem. Mind the main idea of it! Read, please!
So many countries all over the world,
So many people life- tales told!
Different cities, languages, poems,
Amazing traditions, legends, stories,
We travel East, we travel West
To know so much is best,
If South is warm, North is cold,
We start our trip and off we go!
T: What is the key – word in the poem?
T: Right you are! So, we are going to have an imaginary trip. But where? Guess yourself. I want you to answer one question: What is the name of the country the language of which we study? (England, Great Britain, the United Kingdom).
T: Right you are: So, the theme of our lesson today is: The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This is the official name.
T: First of all, let’s make a cluster.
T: so, let’s think. What we know about the UK. (UK is in Europe, English is an official language of UK, the capital of the UK is London, it’s an island)
T: Is it all? Well! Now let’s write : What do you want to know?
T: Well good. And the last cluster we’ll write at the end of our lesson.

Your task is to read aloud one by one.
T: now, we have 3 groups. Your task is to put 2 questions to another 2 groups, concerning only your own paragraph. And our guest will prepare her own questions .
I want to tell you about it. England – is only one part of the UK. It is situated in the south of the UK. Great Britain is the geographical name of the country. And when smb asks: How many countries does great Britain consist of, we answer Three: England, Scotland and Wales.
And the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland – is the official name of the country. You know but sometimes in everyday use the word “Britain” is quite possible.
The next question is : Why do you think the population lives mostly in towns and cities, but not in the countryside?
The third is: Why is the climate in Great Britain so mild and wet? And do you know what is the UK washed by? And what about the Irish Sea?
