Good morning, boys and girls! Let me introduce myself. My name is Olzhabayeva Shyryn Amanbekkyzy. I study at the pedagogical college. I will conduct today’s lesson for you. So let’s begin our lesson.
The teacher gives for each student star. Then a student which has a green star stands up and answers to the teacher`s questions:
What is your name?
How are you?
What day is it today?
What date is it today?
What is the weather like today?
Do you like English lesson?
Boys and girls! I’m glad that you are all fine. Please, be more attentive! Look at the blackboard! Now I say the tongue twister and you should repeat after me in chorus:
I thought a thought
But the thought I thought
wasn't the thought I thought I thought
If the thought I thought I thought had been the thought I thought
I wouldn't have thought so much.
Brainstorming. Game ‘Guess what’s this?’
Ok. Thanks, take your sits. Let’s play a game. This game’s name is ‘Guess what’s this?’ Do you know this game? Let me explain you the rules of this game: one student comes to the table and picks up a word from the envelope, and he must show it with mimic. And other students must guess this word.

Now, everybody look at the active board! Pay attention to the video. Do you know how the name ‘weekend’ appeared? So let’s see the video about that!
So, I think we know more information about the history of the weekend. Do you understand the video? Who wants to say their opinion according to the video? Please, try!

Differentiation – how do you plan to give more support? How do you plan to challenge the more able learners?
Assessment – how are you planning to check learners’ learning?
Cross-curricular links Health and safety check ICT links Values links
More support can be given at the start and in middle of lesson by providing less-able learners with story vocabulary in a word list so they can read examples of words seen or heard.
Learners who are less confident at making up dialogue, can be given copies of parts of the dialogue from the story to read aloud.
More-able learners can be encouraged to use the full range of language from the video when they practise the role-play.
Monitor how much vocabulary learners can recall from images on the video without sound and then from video with sound.
Monitor learners as they reorder events from the story. Can they read and understand each event and can they sort them into chronological order? Notice any sentences which are difficult for learners to understand and adapt for a future lesson.
Monitor groups of learners as they agree on and practise dialogue for the role-play activity. Do they take turns to speak? Do they contribute appropriate language for the role-play?
Links to the L1: Do learners know this story in the L1 and do they know any other Aesop’s fables?
Make sure learners have sufficient space to act out the role-play.
As the unit is on the topic of values, it is very important to leave time to discuss the end two questions with the whole class.
Were the lesson objectives/learning objectives realistic?
What did the learners learn today?
What was the learning atmosphere like?
Did my planned differentiation work well?
Did I stick to timings? What changes did I make from my plan and why?
