I. Introduction.

1.1 Greeting

T: Good morning, everybody!

Our today’s lesson is going to be about some free time activities and leisure time.  All of us need a good rest and some fun after a hard day at work or at school. There’s no better way than to relax somewhere at a party, especially if it is a birthday party.

Can you hear some nice sounds of music?

They come from Craig’s birthday  party.

Let’s visit him and have some fun, all friends together.

1.2. Warming up

T: Before going to the party, we need to revise some words and expressions. Repeat after the teacher the following words.

Phonetic drill (HO1)

[ɜː] birthday / workshop/

[æ] candle/ hat/tag

[ei] cake / celebration / game/ station/

[e] presents/ guest/ tennis/

[əu] code/ postcard/


[i] milkshake/ symbol/

[ai] pie/ hide-and-seek/ mime /time

[ɛə] haircut/ hairdo/

[u:] food

[o] comics/ hot potato/

Now we are ready to move to the party.


2. 1. Brainstorming “Carousel” (HO2)

T: To feel comfortable at his party, we need to read the text” At Craig’s birthday.”      


+ and to do some lovely activities under  a pretty title “Carousel” (HO2)

/The teacher splits the children into 4 equal groups and gives them some crayons and hands out.  Then the teacher puts up 5 posters titled ‘STATIONS’ in the classroom.

T: Look at these posters with the mysterious titles “STATIONS.”

   All of them have different purposes:

Station №1 is devoted to some reasons of celebrating birthdays.

Station 2 refers to some birthday symbols.

Station 3 tells us about different birthday games.

Station 4 presents us some birthday food.

Station 5 is a workshop where you can learn how to make birthday cards

T: Let’s start with Station № 1.

Here you should match the two parts of the given sentences

1/Birthday is the event               when you can forget about your problems.     


2) The right day                             when you can have a special haircut

                                                        or hairdo.

3) Is the occasion                          when   you can get nice presents.

T: Now let’s move on to symbols, which are no less important.

You can find them at Station № 2. 

At this station you have to name the objects on the picture.

P: Birthday cake, birthday postcard, presents, candles, guests, games, party food and birthday hats.

T: If you stop at Station № 3, you will find a few enjoyable activities.

    Your task is to choose the games useful for playing at any birthday party.

Football, hide-and-seek, tennis, tag, ski, hot potato, basketball, mime and guess hot the animal. 

P: hide-and-seek, tag, potato, mime and guess the animal. 

T: Station № 4 offers us to put the letters into the correct order so that we could read the name of holiday food.

n, r, o, c, p, o, P- popcorn                          s, p, s, i, r, C -crisps

a, z, z, i, P-pizza                                         e, i, P-pie

e, d, a, n, o, m, e, L-lemonade                   e, k, o, C-coke

e, k, a, h, s, k, l, i, M-milkshake                m, a, e, r, c, e, c, I-ice cream

2.3. Listening

T: Now let’s see if Craig had all these attributes on his birthday.

The pupils listen to the text.

    -Hi, Ben! Come in. It’s Craig’s birthday party. Do you like playing party games?

  •  Oh, yes!
  •  Happy birthday, Craig! This is for you!
  •  Thank you. Oh, wow! It’s a code book. Thanks a lot!
  •  Oh, good! I’ve got a code for Craig in this notebook.
  •  Let’s play Musical Chairs.
  •  I’m good at Musical Chairs.
  •  I’m not! Aah!

-Look at Station 1.

Did Craig wait for guests to spend a good time with them?

-Which symbols can you find on his birthday?

-If you look at Station 3, you’ll notice some games and finally some food.

2.4. Party Games/ consolidation of the vocabulary/

T: Do you know how to play the game “Musical chairs?”

First, you should put some chairs back to back. Then when music starts, you must run around the chairs and stop to take a seat as quick as possible. The person who doesn’t manage to take a seat is out. Take one chair away…and start again!

Let’s play this game! (tape recorder is playing)  

-We can offer Craig to play some other lovely games.

One of them is “The Animal Conference”.

Instructions: Each person is given a cut-out piece of a construction paper with the picture of an animal ( kangaroo, elephant, giraffe, penguin, lion, monkey, mouse, parrot, antelope, cat, dog, bear, tiger, squirrel, fox, deer, pig, flamingo.) 

The halves of the pictures of the animals are to be stuck together in order to make a new animal.

For example, if we match a kangaroo and a giraffe together, we can get a new interesting animal, which we can call a kangiraffe.

P: Each pair matches the two halves of the pictures of the animals and gives a name to the newly made beast.

2.5. Eating birthday food. / Speaking/ (HO3)

-And now food, glorious food.

T: What can we eat at a birthday party?

The teacher demonstrates the pictures and the pupils name the food they can see.

P: Sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, cookies, biscuits, and ice-cream.

T: What can we drink at a birthday party?

P: Coke, juice, milkshake and soda.

T: Now you should present your ideas about the food you enjoy most of all at a birthday party. Begin with:

I am fond of…

I enjoy eating…

I adore…

I think ……. is yummy-yummy.

2.6. Making birthday postcards. (HO4)

T: Finally, we are going to go to Station 5.

     By the way, do you know why it is called a “Happy Workshop”?

P: Because it teaches us how to make birthday postcards.

T: Let’s make them with our hands and write nice birthday wishes there;

  There are some wishes you can pick up from the poster.

For a very happy day

And then the year

That brings the best

Of everything your way

Enjoy your special day!
