II. Основна частина уроку
T: Now you will listen to a text about the system of education in England. Please, be attentive,because after listening you will answer my questions. Make notes if you need them.
England has a very interesting system of education. Education is class divided in England. There are state and public (private) schools. About 90% of children go to the state schools and other go to the public (private) schools. All state schools in Britain are free. Some parents choose private schools for their children. They are very expensive, considered to provide a better education and good job opportunities. Parents pay for these schools. An example of a private school is Eton. It is the most famous public school. A year at Eton costs &17000. it is very old and a lot of important people used to be students there. There are 3 stages of education:
Primary education consists of infant schools and junior schools. Primary education lasts for 6 years. At first they attend the infant school from 5 to 7, and then junior school until they are 11. In infant school children don’t have real classes. They study to write and read; they mostly play. They know some numbers. When children are 7, real studying begins. They have classes and don’t play as much as it was in infant school.
Then begins the secondary education. Parents can choose one of the type of secondary education schools. There are modern schools, comprehensive schools and grammar schools, which accept a wide range of children from all backgrounds. Children study a lot of compulsory subjects. English, Maths and Science are called ‘core’ subjects. If pupils go to grammar schools they will have a good theoretical secondary education. Primary and secondary education are compulsory for all children. After 5 years of secondary education pupils take exams in different subjects, and they get General Certificate of Secondary Education- GCSE. After that students can leave and start working or continue their studies in the same school as before. If they continue, they have to take further examinations, which are necessary for getting into university or college.
The school year in English school has three terms: autumn term (September-Christmas), spring term (January-Easter) and summer term (Easter – June). There are holidays after each term. Autumn and spring holidays are about 6 weeks. In addition all schools have a half-term, which lasts a week in the middle of each term.
Each school has its colour of uniform. One of the most important elements of the uniform is a school tie.
English children go to school 5 days a week. They don’t go to school on
Saturdays and on Sundays. The school day starts at 9 o’clock and finishes
between 3 and 4 p.m. The lunch break usually lasts an hour and a quarter.
Besides classes there are a lot of extracurricular activities after school. English
schools offer a wide range of activities (school orchestra, music ensembles,
