Спросить знают ли ребята историю этих символов.

What do you know about the history of these symbols?

Ведущие рассказывают об истории возникновения флористических символов.

England – red rose

The floral symbol of England is the red rose. Earlier, it decorated the arms of the House of Lancaster. The Lancastrians argued for the throne of England with the Yorkists whose arms had a white rose. The war for the throne between the Lancastrians and Yorkists became known in the history of the country as the War of the Red and White Rose. It lasted 30 years (1455-1485). When the Lancastrians won the war, their arms of the Red Rose became the symbol of the whole England.

Scotland – thistle

The Scottish symbol is a wild plant called the Thistle. At one point, the Scandinavians planned to attack a Scottish village. But since the Scots knew they were coming, they started to prepare for war. Late at night, the Scandinavians came on their bare feet so as to not awaken the Scottish warriors in the village. But the thorns of the thistle hurt their bare feet. Their howls of pain pierced the silence and the Scots awoke to fight the enemy.

Wales – leek (daffodil)

The Welsh symbol is a vegetable called the Leek (or, on occasion, the flower, the daffodil). The patron saint of Wales, David, ate only leeks and bread. In memory of this Christian Saint, the leek became the symbol of Wales. Daffodils which burst into flames by the 1st of March celebrate the revered Welsh saint.

Northern Ireland – shamrock

The Irish symbol is another wild plant called the Shamrock. This plant helped St Patrick explain to the people of his country what the Holy Trinity is.

4. The fourth task:

The capital of England is London. Do you know the most interesting places of this city?

Презентация. Показ слайдов. Назвать достопримечательности Лондона.

5. Scotland – the birthplace of a famous poet – Robert Burns. Burn’s poetry is loved and enjoyed by all his countrymen. They love Burns for the generosity and kindness of his nature, for his patriotism and truthfulness.

Listen to the poem

My Heart in the Highlands

My heart in the highlands, my heart is not here,

My heart in the Highlands a-chasing the deer,

A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe

My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go.

Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,

The birth-place of valour, the country of worth,

Wherever I wander, where I rove,

The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.

Farewell to the mountains, high cover’d with snow,

Farewell to the straths and green valleys below,

Farewell to the forests and wild-handing woods,

Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.

My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here.

My heart’s in the Highlands a-chasing the deer.

A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe,

My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go.

6. Northern Ireland.

Do you know what holiday is celebrated on the 31st of October?

What country does this holiday originate from?

If you want to know where it comes from, the pupils of the 8th form will tell you a story about this holiday.

It’s Halloween!

It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!

The Moon is full and bright

And we shall see what can’t be seen

On any other night:

Skeletons and ghosts,

Grinning goblins fighting,

Werewolves rising from their tombs,

Witches on the magic brooms.

In masks and gowns we haunt the street

And knock on doors for trick or treat.

Tonight we are the King and Queen,

For oh tonight it’s Halloween!

- As you know Halloween is a festival when people celebrate the return of the dead who come back to visit places where they lived.

- On this day people dress up as witches, ghosts, devils, cats or bats.

- People usually carve a pumpkin and put the candle inside. It is called “Jack-o’lantern”. Do you know why it is called like that?..

- According to the Irish legend there was an Irish man called Jack who was so bad that neither God nor Devil wanted to take him to their realms. Poor Jack was destined to wander in the darkness for ages!

- But one day he came to God and said: “Please, help me, God! I can’t go on living like this! I’m scared – I can’t see anything in the darkness!” And God who was very kind and full of mercy told Jack: “Ok, I’ll help you – here is a pumpkin for you. I carved it and put the candle inside so you can make your way through the darkness with this lantern!”

- Since then a carved pumpkin has been called “Jack-o’-lantern”. The Irish partly migrated to the USA and brought this holiday with them. So the Americans also started to celebrate Halloween traditionally every year.

- But where are our pumpkins?

- Look – they are coming! Let’s count them: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5!!!...

Song: “Five Little Pumpkins”

Five little pumpkins sitting on the gate.

The first one said: “Oh, my, it’s getting late!”

The second one said: “There are witches in the air!”

The third one said: “But we don’t care!”

The fourth one said: “Let’s run and run and run!”

The fifth one said: “I’m ready for some fun!”

“OOOOOOOOOH”, - went the wind and out went the light,

And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

- Also during this holiday the British and American children roam about the city and knock at the doors saying:

Trick or treat, trick or treat,

Give us something good to eat!

- And if the children don’t get any sweets, they really play tricks on people! But if they get sweets, they go away very politely!

- We decided to follow this “Trick-or-treat” tradition and we want to share all the delicious things with you, dear guests!!!

Song: “It’s mine but you can have some”

It’s mine but you can have some,

With you I’d like to share it,

Cause if I share it with you –

You’ll have some, too!

And if I have a cake to eat,

Or if I have a tasty treat,

If you come to me and ask –

I’ll give some to you!

It’s mine but you can have some,

With you I’d like to share it,

Cause if I share it with you –

You’ll have some too!
