PROCEDURE

I. INTRODUCTION

Stepan: Welcome to our school celebration devoted to the study of English. We are lovely and diligent learners, and we learn English with pleasure, as you could see.

Natalia: Today we want to show you different aspects of our school life. It's entertaining and as easy as the ABC's.

II. ABC  ACTIVITIES

The letter E

S: Natalia, guess this riddle: What is the laziest letter in the ABC's? ... It's the letter " E " .

N: Why is " E " the laziest letter?

S: Don't you know? Because it's always in bed.

N: How clever! As for me, this letter should remind us of our favourite subject, English. I know a poem:

English is fun for girls and boys;

It's much better than the toys.

You can read and you can write

And you do it with pleasure, am I right?

S: And I know a good saying:

"The English language is a kingdom and a sleeping beauty. You must awaken her in yourself and the whole kingdom will come to life and be yours".

Do you agree?

The letter S

N: The letter " S " stands for sport, subjects, even songs about school.

S: So, let's listen to what our young learners say about this.

(Young learners perform.)

The letter L

S: The letter "L" stands for letters, love, lessons and limericks.

N: Little Lucy likes lots of lollipops to lick.

S: How did you learn this?

N: I learned this and many more interesting things during our English lessons. The letter "L" also stands for learning.

S: You could observe the way we learn during the 8"1 form lesson.

The letter O

S: By the way, Natalia, are you busy today?

N: Well, Stepan, I think...

S: I mean, are you busy after classes, or do you have any optional activities after school?

N: Optional activities? Oh? It's time to speak of the letter " O " ! I also attend optional classes, and for today we have prepared a play connected with school life, "Pippi Goes to School". (Performance of Pippi Longstocking.)

The letter H

S: Natalia, can a person be punished for what he has not even done?

N: Oh, certainly not. Why are you asking?

S: Because I haven't done my homework for today.

N: Don't worry, Stepan. Our home task was very easy. I 'm sure you'd know how to do it, and almost everybody is ready with this task because the letter " H " means not only homework, but "humour" too. Do you have a good sense of humour? Let's see... (5,hform pupils tell jokes.)

Teacher: Name two days of the week that start with

Pupil: Today and Tomorrow.

Mother: What did you learn in school today?

Son: How to write.

Mother: What did you write?

Son: I don't know, they haven't taught us how to read yet!

Teacher: Why is your homework in your father's handwriting?

Pupil: I used his pen!

Billy: Do you write with your right or left hand?

Joel: My left hand.

Billy: Wrong! You write with a pencil!

The letter C

S: Seeing the letter " C " "classwork" usually comes to mind.

N: What about classmates?

S: OK. In the classroom together with my classmates we practise writing compositions for the Independent Testing.

N: It's because you're in the 1 llh form, but I'm still enjoying our English lessons in the computer class. We work on the computer, play and take mini-tests. By the way, in this photo, I'm in the 7th form. I've won a game and received a 12.

S: So, you are just playing, but smart and creative pupils usually do and present their projects with the help of a computer. Tania and Khrystia are the 7th formers. Please, what is the topic of your project?

(Tania and Khrystia present their project, "Doing Chores".)

The letter I

S: Natalia, can you make up a sentence beginning with the letter " I " ?

N: I is...

S: No, no, no! Where is your grammar? You should say I am...

N: OK. I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.

S: Sorry, you meant " I " not as a pronoun, but as a letter.

N: And this is a very intelligent letter, and it stands for intellectual competitions, by the way, beginning also with the letter " I " .

S: So, please welcome the pupils of the 9lh and 10lh forms in the competition, "I Love English". (9h and 10hform pupils compete in "I Love English ".)

PIPPI GOES TO SCHOOL

After Astrid Lindgren

Adaptedfor reader's theatre from "Pippi Longstocking"

Genre: Humour.

Characters: Narrator 1, Narrator 2, Pippi, Tommy, Annika, Teacher, (Students).

Narrator 1: In a little town in Sweden, there was a tumbledown house called Villa Villekulla. And in this house lived a girl with carrot-coloured pigtails and shoes twice as long as her feet.

Narrator 2: This was no ordinary girl. She was the strongest girl in the world, and her name was Pippi Longstocking.

Narrator 1: Pippi lived there all by herself - except for a monkey named Mr. Nilsson and a horse on the porch. There was no one to tell her what to do, so Pippi did just what she liked.

Narrator 2: One of the things Pippi liked best was to play with her friends Tommy and Annika. And more than anything in the world, Tommy and Annika liked to play with

Pippi. Of course, Tommy and Annika had to go to school.

Annika (to Tommy): If only Pippi went too, how much fun we could have!

Narrator 1: They decided to try to persuade her. One afternoon in Pippi's kitchen, Tommy said,

Tommy: You can't imagine what a nice teacher we have.

Annika: If you only knew what fun it is in school! I'd die if I couldn't go to school.

Narrator 2: Pippi sat soaking her feet in a tub. She said nothing, but just wiggled her toes so the water splashed around everywhere.

Tommy: You don't have to stay so long. Just until two o'clock.

Annika: Yes, and besides, we get Christmas vacation and Easter vacation and summer vacation.

Narrator 1: Suddenly, Pippi poured all the water out on the kitchen floor.

Pippi: It is absolutely unfair! I won't stand for it!

Tommy: What's the matter? Pippi: In four months, it will be Christmas, and then you'll have Christmas vacation! But what'll / get? No Christmas vacation — not even the tiniest bit of one. Something will have to be done about that. Tomorrow morning, I'll begin school!

Annika: Hurray!

Tommy: We'll wait for you outside our gate at eight o'clock.

Pippi: Oh, no, I can't begin as early as that! And besides, I'm going to ride to school.

Narrator 2: And ride she did!

Narrator 1: The next day, at exactly ten o'clock, Pippi lifted her horse off the porch. Then she galloped wildly through the town.

Narrator 2: When she reached the schoolyard, she jumped off the horse, tied him to a tree, and burst into the schoolroom.

Pippi: Hi there! Did I get here in time for pluttification?

Narrator 1: Tommy and Annika had told their teacher that Pippi was coming. She had decided to do all she could to make Pippi happy in school.

Teacher: Welcome to school, Pippi. I hope you will enjoy yourself here and learn a great deal.

Pippi: Yes, and I hope I'll get some Christmas vacation. That is the reason I've come. It's only fair, you know.

Teacher: If you would first tell me your whole name, I'll register you in school.

Pippi: My name is Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Efraim's Daughter Longstocking, daughter of Captain Efraim Longstocking, formerly the Terror of the Sea,now a cannibal king. Pippi is really only a nickname, because Papa thought Pippilotta was too long to say.

Teacher: Well, then, we shall call you Pippi, too. But now suppose we test you a little and see what you know.

Pippi, can you tell me what seven and five are?

Pippi (shocked): Well, if you don't know that yourself, I'm certainly not going to tell you! Other children gasp.

Narrator 2: All the children stared at Pippi in horror.

Teacher (gently): Pippi, we don't answer that way in school.

Pippi (sincerely): I beg your pardon. I didn't know that. I won't do it again.

Teacher: No, let us hope not. And now I will tell you that seven and five are twelve.

Pippi: See that! You knew it yourself! So why are you asking?

Narrator 1: The teacher decided to act as if nothing had happened.

Teacher: Well, now, Pippi, how much do you think eight and four are?

Pippi: Oh, about sixty-seven.

Teacher: Of course not! Eight and four are twelve!

Pippi: Well now, really, that is carrying things too far! You just said that seven andfive are twelve. There should be some rhyme and reason to things, even in school!

Narrator 2: The teacher decided there was no point trying to teach Pippi any more arithmetic.

Teacher: Tommy, if Lisa has seven apples and Axel has nine apples, how many apples do they have together?

Pippi: Yes, you tell her, Tommy, and tell me too, if Lisa gets a stomach-ache and Axel gets more of a stomach-ache, whose fault is it, and where did they get those apples in the first place?

Narrator 1: The teacher decided to give up on arithmetic altogether.

Teacher (getting frustrated): Pippi, maybe you would prefer to learn reading. Here is a picture of a wild goat called an ibex. And the letter you see in front of the ibex is called " i " .

Pippi: That I'll never believe. I think it looks exactly like a straight line with a little fly speck over it. But what I'd really like to know is, what does the ibex have to do with the fly speck?

Narrator 1: The teacher's patience had come to an end.

Teacher: Children, go outside so I can talk to Pippi alone. Other children go out.

Narrator 2: When Pippi and the teacher were by themselves, Pippi came over to her.

Pippi: You know what? It was lots of fun to come to school to find out what it's like. But I don't think I want to come anymore — Christmas vacation or no Christmas vacation. There are altogether too many apples and ibexes and snakes and things like that. It makes me dizzy in the head. I hope you won't be upset. Teacher.

Teacher: 1 certainly am upset, Pippi, but I 'm upset that you won't b.ehave properly! Any child who acts as badly as you do wouldn't be allowed to come to school no matter how much she wanted to!

Pippi (astonished, almost starting to cry): Have I behaved badly? Goodness, I didn't know that. You understand, Teacher, don't you, that when you have a mother who's an angel in Heaven and a father who's a cannibal king, you don't know just how to behave in school, with all the apples and ibexes.

Teacher (calming down): I understand, Pippi. I'm not annoyed anymore. Maybe you can come back to school when you're a little older.

Pippi (happily): 1 think you are awfully nice, Teacher. And here is something for you.

Narrator 1: Pippi took from her pocket a lovely gold watch.

Teacher: Pippi, I can't possibly accept such a valuable gift!

Pippi: But you have to take it! Otherwise, I'll come back tomorrow, and you wouldn't like that, would you?

Narrator 2: Then Pippi rushed out to the schoolyard and jumped on her horse. All the children waved goodbye.

Pippi (waving and riding off): So long, kids, i won't be back for awhile. But always remember how many apples Axel had - or you'll be sorry!
