Please, answer: Have you ever been to London? I suppose you haven’t. But before we start our journey you should sing a song. Let’s sing a song “Have you ever been to London?” (Дети поют песню)

II. Работа с картой

Учитель обращает внимание учащихся на карту Великобритании.

– Look at the map. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ire­land (the UK) is the official name of the state which is situat­ed in the British Isles. Thus, "Great Britain" is often the same as "Britain", or "the United Kingdom", or just "UK". It consists of four countries which are England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. You can see them on the map. Their capitals are London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast.
The UK is an island state. The two main islands are Great Britain (where England, Scotland and Wales are situated) and Ireland. Northern Ireland and the independent Irish Re­public are there. The two islands are separated by the Irish Sea.
The UK is separated from the continent by the English Channel and the Strait of Dover. Once the British Isles used to be a part of the continent. The nearest point to Europe is the Strait of Dover.
The UK is also washed by the Atlantic Ocean in the north and the North Sea in the east.

Далее учитель вызывает учащихся к доске с просьбой показать части Великобритании, столицы. Учащиеся отвечают на вопросы учителя.

– Could you answer the questions?

1. Where is the UK situated?
2. Why do you think the UK is called "an island state"?
3. What other country is situated on the British Isles?
4. What languages are spoken in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland?

III. Работа с достопримечательностями страны

– Let's speak about London. We start our tour from Trafalgar Square. You have a presentation and a booklet. (Дети показывают презентацию и буклет, рассказывают о достопримечательностях, пользуясь презентацией.)

1. About London (Anya)

– As usual we have the guide. Our guide will be Anya. Please.

– Hello, ladies and gentlemen. I’m very glad to see you. I will be your guide. You can ask me the questions and I will try to answer.

– London is more than two thousand years old.
– What are the most beautiful sights in London?
– There are some interesting places in London. They are Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament and some others.
– Thank for your questions. Now let’s visit some of them.

2. Trafalgar Square (Misha)

Trafalgar Square is in the centre of London. It was built in 1828. In the middle of Trafalgar Square is Nelson’s Column. Admiral Nelson defeated the French at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. From that time English men wear black ties.
This Column is fifty meters high. A lot of demonstrations and public meetings take place here. It’s a famous square where on New Year’s Eve people gather to celebrate.

3. St. Paul’s Cathedral (Vika)

St. Paul’s Cathedral is the city’s greatest monument. It was built by Sir Christopher Wren in 1675–1710, to replace the old Cathedral that was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. The Cathedral is second in size only to St. Peter’s in Rome.
Between the two west towers rises the famous dome. It’s 365 feet high and beneath it is the celebrated “Whispering Gallery”. Wren is buried there, also Wellington and Nelson.

4. Buckingham Palace (Vera)

Buckingham Palace is an official residence of the Queen and her family. It isn’t open to the public.
When the Queen is in residence the Royal Standard flies over the east front of Buckingham Palace. It has 600 rooms, a swimming pool, a cinema, a ballroom, and a garden, which is like a private park.
In summer the Queen gives three garden parties for about 9,000 guests. The ceremony of the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace is a great tourist attraction. It takes place daily at 11.30 a.m. and lasts half an hour. To the sound of music, the guardsmen arrive and pass the palace keys to another group.

5. The National Gallery (Oleg)

The National Gallery. The whole of the north side of Trafalgar Square is dominated by the National Gallery. It houses one of the finest art collections in the world. It includes paintings from Britain, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch, Flemish and other famous schools. It has a priceless collection of paintings by the famous artists Van Gogh, Rubens, Constable and many others.

6. The Houses of Parliament (Tanya)

The Houses of Parliament. It was once a royal palace. Now it’s the seat of Government. In 1834 it was destroyed by fire. The new building was built in 1852. It contains 500 apartments.
Among them are the Central Hall, the House of Lords, and the House of Commons. When the House is in session a Union Jack flies over the Tower by day, and a light burns in the clock Tower, or Big Ben by night.
The people of London can hear the sound of the bell every hour.

7. Westminster Abbey (Ivan)

Westminster Abbey is a symbol of English tradition at its best. The coronation of nearly all English kings and queens since William the Conqueror has taken place here. Many of them are buried within the Abbey. There are also the graves of famous poets, writers, and statesmen. Here you can see memorials to Newton, Darwin, Dickens, Chaucer and others.

8. The Tower of London. (Zhenya)

The Tower of London is a very old building – nine hundred years old. In the early days of England the British (English) kings lived in the Tower. Then it was a prison where many people died. Black ravens had much food near the walls оf the Tower in those days.
Now it’s a museum housing the National Collection of Armour and Royal Regalia. Many tourists from other countries come to see it. They see the dark stone halls with small windows and thick doors. The Tower is still guarded by the famous Beefeaters who wear a traditional Sixteenth century uniform.
