P2: My name is Jack and here is my lantern made from a pumpkin. As you see I've cut out shits for two eyes, a nose and a mouth, and put a lighted candle inside. I used to play practical jokes on the devil and I am punished for it. I'm not permitted to enter heaven and have to walk on and on over the earth. As you see, my story is very sad.

T: Pupils, who knows any legends connected with Halloween? (группа детей рассказывает варианты легенд) <Приложение 2>.


P3. Halloween was first celebrated many centuries ago in Ireland and Scotland by Celtic priests called Druids. They observed the end of autumn and the beginning of winter. The Druids thought that Halloween was the night when the witches came out. As they were afraid of withes they put on different clothes and painted their faces to deceive the evil spirits. They also placed food and small gifts near the doors on their houses for the witches .This was, as they say now the beginning of the expression trick or treat "meaning" give me something or I'll play a trick on you.

Р4. In recent years, grown-up people have begun taking part in Halloween. In New York, for example, Young and Old take part in parades together. On the 31st of October, long before the time when the carnival procession begins to move, a great number of people get together in one of the streets. They are dressed as witches, demons and other evil spirits. There are hundreds of large orange "pumpkins" in their hands. After the parade the festival almost till early morning.

T: lt's high time to sing

1. In a cavern, in a canyon,
Excavating for a mine,
Dwelt a miner, forty-niner,
And his daughter Clementine.

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling,
Oh, my darling Clementine.
Thou art lost and gone for ever,
Dreadful sorry, Clementine.

2. Light she was and like a fairy,
And her shoes were number nine,
Herring-boxes without tops
Sandals were for Clementine.


3. Drove she ducking to the water,
Every morning just at nine;
Struck her foot against a splinter,
Fell into the foaming brine.

T: Now I offer to eat Halloween cookies made according the recipe taken from magazine "Clockwork". <Приложение 8>
