Т: Hello, children! Today we have an unusual lesson. We have a New Year party. I think you’ll
know more about Christmas and New Year in English-speaking countries. I think you’ll find this
lesson interesting. We’ll know how people in America, Great Britain celebrate this holiday.
We’ll know about Russian people. I think it’s interesting.
-P1: If it’s New Year will Father Frost come?
T: I don’t know. But it’s a New Year party and if we call him, miracles will come Father Frost will
come. Children, let’s call him!
Pupils: Father Frost! Father Frost! Father Frost!
(Входит Дед Мороз)
Father Frost: Hello, children. It was a long way! But I have come. I’m so tired, so I’ll take a sit.
And I want to listen about Christmas and New Year. These are my favourite holidays. I like them
very much! Let’s start, children.
P1: The 25
of December is Christmas Day. It’s a happy holiday for a lot of people in different
countries. Some weeks before Christmas English people are busy. They send greeting cards to
all their relatives and friends. They can buy Christmas cards or they can make them. A lot of
children make their cards at school.
T: Do you know when do Russian people celebrate Christmas?
P1: Yes, I do. We celebrate it on January, 7.
P2: People buy a Christmas tree and decorate it with toys, coloured lights. On Christmas Eve
people put their presents under the tree. When children go to bed, they put their stockings
near their beds. At night Father Christmas comes. He has got a big bag of presents for children. I
promise not to stay up late at night.
T: Do you know how do Russian people call Father Christmas?
P3: Yes, I know. By the way Russian people call him Father Frost. I like him. Every year there is a
very big Christmas tree in the center of London, in Trafalgar Square. This is a present from
people or Norway for the people of Great Britain. They send it to London every year and
London people decorate the Christmas tree. In the evening before Christmas people like to
come to Trafalgar Square to look at the trees. On the Christmas Eve the streets in London are
decorated too.
T: What about Moscow main tree?
P4: The main New Year tree is in the Kremlin. People find the best in Russia and put it in the
Kremlin. It’s very nice.
T: What about presents for New Year and Christmas? Are they special?
P5: It’s a wonderful time. The shops are very busy on Christmas. People want to buy a lot of
food and drink for all the Christmas pates. People buy presents for their family and friends (for
their nearest and dearest). People open their presents on Christmas morning and they all are
happy with what they get. Russian people open their presents on New Year when the clocks
strikes twelve. I promise to listen to my mum and dad.
T: Is there any special food for Christmas?
P6: For Christmas dinner people eat turkey, potatoes and green vegetables. Then they have the
Christmas pudding. At five o’clock it’s time for tea and Christmas cake. English people like to
drink tea. They drink every day. On Christmas people wish their nearest and dearest a merry
T: Who knows anything about the day after Christmas?
P7: The day after Christmas is Boxing Day. In Russia people don’t work for 10 days. Russian
people also go to their friends and give presents to each other. I like this time.
T: And now let’s speak about Russian favourite holiday – about New Year.
P8: Not all English people celebrate New Year. Those who do, celebrate it on 31
of December.
A lot of people go to Trafalgar Square to see Christmas tree. They have a New Year party at
home. On that day they wish their dearest and nearest a “Happy New Year”. When Big Ben
strikes twelve they drink a toast to the New Year.
T: And how do Russian people celebrate New Year?
P9: As we say New Year is the main holiday. We get together and when the clock strikes 12 we
drink a toast to the New Year too. Some people go to the streets, some people stay at home. As
for our family we like to celebrate it at home too.
T: There are many English-speaking countries. We have spoken about Great Britain. Now let’s
speak about America.
P10: In America people celebrate New Year too. They visit their relatives and friends or have
parties at home. English and American people often make New Year’s resolutions they are
promised for the New Year. Children make New Year’s resolutions, too.
T: Now let’s speak about New Year’s resolutions can we give to our Father Frost? It’s a good
tradition to give New Year’s resolutions and it’s very nice if you keep them in future.
- Children promise one by one:
- I promise to be very, very good.
- I promise to do the things I should.
- I promise to make my bed each day.
- I promise to put my things away.
- I promise not to throw my socks on the floor.
- I promise to put my socks in the drawer.
- I promise to do my homework right.
- I promise not to stay up late at night.
- I promise to listen my mom and dad.
- I promise not to do anything bad.
T: I again tell you that you are at the New Year party. All of us want to get presents from Father
Frost. You’ll get them if you tell poems and sing songs about New Year and Christmas.
- Children read poems and sing songs:
1) White Christmas
2) Oh, Christmas Tree
3) Let it snow
4) Santa Claus is coming to Town
- Father Frost give presents all the pupils.
P3: I know a joke about New Year. Can I say it to you with Nikita?
T: Sure
P4: I’ve got a New Year’s resolutions I can easily keep it.
P3: What is it?
P4: I’m not going to make anymore New Year’s resolution.
T: Oh, children! Thank you very much for your poems and songs! They were wonderful!
Father Frost: Thank you very much! I’m so glad that I have come to you. My
congratulations! I’ll go!
P4: Father Frost! Stop please! Don’t go! We have prepared a present to you too! It’s a song!
