Учитель: Good afternoon, dear boys and girls, dear our guests! I’m glad to see you very much. Today we have an unusual lesson. We won’t read and translate any texts, we won’t write and do any grammar exercises. We’ll just have a fun and enjoy our party. Today we’ll sing songs and recite poems. Do you know what date it is today?
Ученик 1: Today is the 14th of February.
Учитель: Right. And what holiday do most people celebrate in many countries today?
Ученик 2: We celebrate St. Valentine’s Day today.
Учитель: Yes, today is one of the most beautiful and famous holidays. It’s a day when boys and girls, women and men, husbands and wives say good and lovely words to each other, make a declaration of love and give presents to each other. So, it’s a day for sweethearts, for those people who love and are loved. I hope you know who is one of the early symbols of love.
Ученик 3: One of the early symbols of love is Cupid, the Roman God of Love, who is represented as a young boy with a bow and arrows.
Учитель: St. Valentine’s Day is a religious holiday. But do you know why holiday is called St. Valentine’s Day? As far as I know this holiday has roots in several legends. Can you tell me any of them?
Ученик 3: Many legends say that Valentine was a Christian priest. He lived three hundred years after the death of Jesus Christ in the Roman Empire. On the fourteenth of February Valentine was killed because he was a Christian and he married couples contrary to the laws of the Roman Empire.
Ученик 4: Other legend says that he cured a prisoner’s daughter from blindness and just before his death, on February 14, he sent her a farewell message signed “From your Valentine”.
Учитель: You are right, girls. To understand what the girls were talking about, Angela, can you tell us about the legends of the holiday in Russian?
Ученик 5 рассказывает о легендах на русском языке.
Учитель: As you know this day most people exchange greetings of affection and undying love. Most people send “valentines”, sentimental and heartfelt greeting cards where they write nice small poems. What can “valentines” be?
Ученик 6: Valentines can be heart-shaped or can have hearts on them.
Учитель: And now let’s recite poems which you’ve prepared at home.
Let me call you sweetheart
I’m in love with you.
Let me hear your whisper
That you love me, too.
Keep the love light glowing
In your eyes so true.
Let me call you sweetheart.
I’m in love with you.
I’ll be your sweetheart,
If you will be mine,
All of my life
I’ll be your Valentine.
My heart to you is given:
Oh, do give yours to me;
We’ll lock them up together,
And throw away the key…
The rose is red,
The violets are blue,
The honey’s sweet
And so are you.
There’s a special place within my heart
That only you can fill.
For you had my love right from the start
And I know you always will.
I’m sending you a Valentine’s Wish
Filled with Hugs and Kisses too.
Because there is a special place
Within my heart for you.
My love is like a cabbage,
Divided into two.
The leaves I give to others,
But the heart I give to you.
My thoughts of you
On Valentine’s Day
Are as warm as they can be,
Because you’re someone special
Who means so much to me.
February the fourteenth day,
It’s valentine, they say.
I choose you from among the rest,
The reason is I love you best.
I wrote your name in the sky,
but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in the sand,
but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name in my heart,…
and forever it will stay!
If you will be my Valentine,
My charming little dear,
The sun can never help but shine
Throughout the coming year.
Учитель: Thank you boys and girls! You’ve coped with your task very well. There are also a lot of beautiful songs about love. One of the most popular songs is “You are my sunshine”. Let’s sing this song.
Учащиеся поют песню на английском языке.
Учитель: Thank you. You sing very well. The song is very beautiful and sentimental, isn’t it?
As far as I’ve already told, on this holiday it’s a tradition to give “valentines” to each other, especially children like to do it at schools. Children want to show how much they love their teachers, how much they appreciate them. We also would like to say that we love our teachers of Sport School of Olympic Reserve.
There are postmen at the lesson. Come here, girls.
Here’s special valentine
With lots of love for you.
And since you’re very special
Here hugs and kisses, too!
Valentine so bright and gay,
I’m sending out today.
With the message “I love you”
Hoping that you love me, too.
Почтальоны раздают валентинки.
Учитель: St. Valentine’s day has become very popular in our country, too. Most people love this holiday. I hope that St. Valentine’s day will bring you lots of fun. I’d like to wish you great love and happiness. Don’t be shy to say how much you love your parents, friends and your teachers.
