Ход мероприятия

Emcee: Good morning, smiling faces! How are you? Feeling friendly? You are welcome! We’ll have a wonderful time together. You’ll feel happy. Today, we speak about very interesting theme "Calendar of Holidays". Слайд

From Scotland to the Channel, Britain is full of customs and traditions. A lot of them have very long histories. Some are funny, some are strange. But they're all interesting and are all part of the British way of life. Holidays are a part of every culture. Knowing them, we can learn more about local people and their way of life. Traditional holidays may reflect not only the nation and its character, but also the history of the country. Слайд

Same can be said about England. English people love celebrating holidays. Although officially the country has only six public holidays, there are many other symbolic days, which have been celebrated for ages. Six public holidays are: Christmas and Boxing Days, Good Friday and Easter, Spring and Late Summer Bank Holidays.

But now I want to tell you about one of the most favourite holiday. It's birthday time. Слайд

 "What will you do on your birthday?" Most British celebrate their birthdays on the day on which they were born. Like in Russia, friends and relatives share in the celebration. A cake is baked, group games are played, and prizes and souvenirs are passed out to all of the guests. Cone-shaped paper birthday hats may be worn and noise makers passed out to everyone present. Serving of the ornately decorated birthday cake is the highlight of the birthday celebration for the guests. First the cake is equipped with candles, one candle for each year of the birthday person's life. Слайды

Выступление 2 класса (It's birthday time)

Emcee: The custom of putting candles on a birthday cake is said to have started about 200 years ago in Germany, renowned for its high-quality candles. It was considered good luck to blow out all of the candles in one blow. Now it is considered as assurance that the birthday wish will come true.


The custom of singing "Happy Birthday to You" began about 100 years ago in America when Mildred and Patty Hill made up the song which has since become a big hit and attracted lots of humorous variations. The most common way to wish someone a happy birthday, however, is with a simple birthday card, a custom that began in England about 100 years ago. Слайд

Let's look at the calendar. The first of January. It's commonly believed that New Year's Day is less important in England than Christmas. It is true in the southern and eastern parts of the country. However, even there, the welcoming of the New Year is growing in popularity, particularly among younger people.

Слайд Another holiday is the most important festival in the Christian church year. It begins with Good Friday. It's Easter, of course. For Christians Easter Sunday is the high point of the year. They celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Girls of the third class will show us the main traditions of this holiday.

Слайд Every February, 14, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this holiday?

St. Valentine's Day has roots in several different legends. One of the earliest popular symbols of the day is Cupid, the Roman god of Love, who is represented by the image of a young boy with a bow and arrow.

Слайд Three hundred years after the death of Jesus Christ, the Roman emperors still demanded that everyone believe in the Roman gods. Valentine, a Christian priest, had been thrown in prison for his teachings. On February 14,Valentine was beheaded. The night before he was executed, he wrote the jailer's daughter a farewell letter signing it, «From Your Valentine.

Another legend tells us that this same Valentine, well-loved by all, wrote notes from his jail cell to children and friends who missed him.

Слайд St. Valentine's Day is now a day for sweethearts. It is the day that you show your friend or loved one that you care. You can send candy to someone you think is special. Or you can send roses, the flower of love. Most people send «valentines, a greeting card named after the notes that St. Valentine wrote from jail. Valentines can be sentimental, romantic and heartfelt. They can be funny and friendly. If the sender is shy, valentines can be anonymous.

You can write a short rhyme inside the heart:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you!

Emcee: Let's fast forward to the autumn. It is an ancient festival, which has its roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain, this was when the Celts celebrated their New Year and the day they believed that the souls of those who had died that year progressed to the underworld. It was said to be a night when ghosts, demons and witches roamed the earth and people tried to placate them with offerings of nuts and berries. Let's see about this holiday.

Слайд In Great Britain and Ireland celebrate Mothering Sunday on the fourth Sunday of March. They eat cake and buy gifts of chocolate or flowers for their mothers as way to thank them for all they do. If it is not possible to see a mother, one can send presents and cards to her. Flowers and cakes are the traditional gifts for all mothers in England. All women try to be nice and happy on this day. And also in June the English people celebrate Father's Day. On that day children send cards and give presents to their father's.

Слайд Now, Let's look at the Calendar! Why is it so green? And why everything is so green, the pupils of the 8 class will tell us.

Слайд Emcee: In UK there are very interesting days, Bank holidays. No business houses and factories are open on these days.

May Day is the first day of the month of May and is a celebration of the beginning of spring. May Day holiday is observed on the first Monday of the month. This Monday is a bank holiday in the UK. Traditional English May Day rites and celebrations include Morris dancing, crowning a May Queen and celebrations involving a maypole.

The Summer Bank Holiday takes place on the lst Monday of August each year in UK. On this public holiday, most shops and store stay open but many operate according to Sunday hours – traditionally a six-hour work day. If the weather is agreeable, people in cities can be found spending the day in parks and on the seaside to catch the last of the summer sun.

Слайд Probably, the most popular holiday in Great Britain is Christmas. Let's see about this religious holiday.

Выступление 6 класса (Christmas) Слайды

Слайд Emcee: Boxing Day in the United Kingdom is the day after Christmas Day and falls on December 26. Traditionally, it was a day when employers distributed money, food, cloth (material) or other valuable goods to their employees. In modern times, it is an important day for sporting events and the start of the post-Christmas sales. Boxing Day is a public holiday. This means it is typically a non working day in the whole of Britain. When Boxing Day falls on a Saturday or Sunday the following Monday is the public holiday.

- Very good! It was the last holiday in our Calendar. We've made so much today. Study foreign languages, and know traditions because of it's very interesting. Thank you for attention! Good luck!
