Teacher. Good afternoon, dear friends! Today we are going to speak about the seasons of the year. There are four seasons in a year: spring, summer, autumn and winter. What are your favourite seasons?
II. Cообщения учащихся.
The 1st pupil. My favourite season is autumn. It’s a beautiful season. The leaves are red, yellow and green. It is warm in September. I can go for a walk. On the 1st of September I am glad to see my friends at school after summer holidays. In autumn there are a lot of vegetables and fruit. I like pears, grapes and watermelons. They are tasty.
The 2nd pupil. I don’t like autumn. It’s dull. I don’t like when it rains. I like summer. Summer is a bright season. The trees are green. It’s hot and I can swim, go sunbathing and play outdoors all day long. I don’t go to school, we have the longest holidays in summer.
The 3rd pupil. And my favourite season is winter. Winter is beautiful. The trees are white with snow. There is a lot of snow in the streets and in the parks. My friends and I can play snowballs, we can make a snowman, go skating and skiing. I have a good time in winter.
The 4th pupil. I don’t like winter. It’s so cold, the sky is grey and it often snows. The days are short and the nights are long. I like spring. It’s a beautiful season. The sun shines brightly, the sky is blue, birds sing songs. In May the trees and grass are green, there are many beautiful flowers in spring.

SCENE FROM THE FAIRY-TALE «TWELVE MONTH»
Заснеженный лес. В глубине сцены – поляна; на поляне горит костёр. Падчерица подходит к лесу, кутаясь в рваный платок.
Stepdaughter. Well, it’s the edge of the forest. It’s so dark here. I can’t see my hands before my face.(Оглядывается.) Oh! I see a light flickering some way off amid the trees.
Падчерица выбегает на поляну.
Около костра стоят 12 месяцев.
December. Who are you? What brought you here?
Stepdaughter. I have to pick a full basket of snowdrops.
Все оглядываются и смеются.
January. Snowdrops in January? Is it a joke, girl?
Stepdaughter. My stepmother sent me here for snowdrops and forbade me to return without them.
February. What are you going to do?
Stepdaughter. I will stay in the forest and wait till the month of April comes. I would rather freeze here then return without them.(Садиться и плачет)
January. Gladly would I grant you an hour, brother, but April can’t come before February and March.
February. Let him take my place, I don’t mind. We all know the girl. We meet her at the ice-hole with her pails or in the forest with her bundle of firewood.
July. And we, summer months, know her, too. She is a good girl.
September. Autumn months like her for her kind heart.
March. We must help her.
January. So be it! (Стучит 3 раза посохом)
Frost, O Frost, cold master of the ice,
Pray melt the frozen heart;
Untie the stiff bonds in a trice
And let the snowdrifts part.
Sturdy fir and lofty pine,
Shake free your crystal lace;
Frozen snows, at once recline,
January yields his place.
Now, it’s your turn, brother February. (Январь передаёт посох Февралю)
February. Wind, tempest, storm and gale,
Blow with all your might.
Blizzard, furies, sleet and hail,
Rage into the night.
Plough your furrows through the snow,
Sweep across the lake.
Drive the ground wind high and low,
Twisting like a snake.
Now it is up to you brother March. (Передаёт посох)
March. Babble gaily, melting brook,
Ripple, glistening pool;
Ants awake and leave your nook,
Goner’s the winter cruel.
Now it is up to you, brother April. (передаёт посох)
April. Birds, return and sing your song,
Disperse the forest gloom.
Bears and squirrels, come along,
Tender snowdrops, bloom.
Girl, you have only one hour. Take your basket and pick snowdrops.
Набрав подснежников, падчерица подходит к месяцам.
Stepdaughter. Thank you very much!
April. We’ve decided to give you our ring. If you want to see us, you’ll have to throw our ring and say:
Roll, roll the ring
To the steps of spring,
To the summer porch,
To the autumn cottage,
With winter shine
To the New Year’s fire!
Stepdaughter. Thank you! Good-bye!
All month. Good-bye, girl!(Девочка уходит)
