2. Take this “magic” apple – a symbol of a united family and pass it to your friend after you have finished your story of 2 or 3 sentences about your family relationship, traditions, etc.

3. I see, LOVE reigns in your families. Your parents do everything possible to make you happy.

7. Аудирование песни

- Unfortunately not all children have parents and relatives who love and care about them. Not all people have food to eat and a warm place to live in. The song “This one’s for the children” sung by the British group “New Kids on the Block” is about people of this kind. It’s a very serious message to the humanity.

- Listen to it very attentively and then answer the question: What does this song teach us to? (Слайд 5)

(Текст песни дан в Приложении 3, ссылка на звуковой файл из Презентации)

8. Проверка понимания

So, what does this song teach us to?

(Примерные ответы детей:

P1: It teaches us to live in peace and friendship.

P2: It teaches us to help people in need.

P3: This song is really serious. It teaches us to pay much attention to children, because they are our future).

Right you are. It is very important to have good relations with other people. What “magic words” will help you to do it? - LOVE, PEACE, MERCY, RESPECT, TOLERANCE.)

Now complete my sentences using the words of the song, please:

  1. It’s very important for father and mother … (to love one another).
  2. It’s very kind of you indeed … (to help others in need).
  3. All the people know… (Love is the only way to go).
  4. Boys and girls and others, remember, … (we all are brothers).

9. Подведение итогов урока

- Our lesson is coming to the end. We have spoken about a lot of important things. Now it’s time to answer the question: can we build a better world?

1. I think we can. Think about what you can do for it.

2. As for me, I can devote more time and care for my relatives.

(На доске на листе ватмана прикреплено изображение земного шара. Учитель берет в руки заранее подготовленную фигурку человечка с написанным на ней своим именем и рисунок детской ладошки, на котором написано “I can devote more time and care for my relatives” и прикрепляет фигурку человечка в центр земного шара, а ладошку на окружность).

3. You can follow my example. If you need some ideas or help, use the language support box.

(Приложение 4)

- You see we’ve already made our world better. It’s not a dream, it’s a reality. Let everybody remember the wise advice of a great English writer John Galsworthy who said: “If you don’t think about the future, you won’t have it”.
