1. Вступительное слово ведущего.
Well, friends, attention, please. I trust you’re all fine today, aren’t you? The weather is wonderful. The holidays are coming and soon you’ll get a chance to put away all your textbooks and spend time with your friends. We’re gathered together today to hold one of the TV games which were extremely popular several years ago. It is called “A lucky chance”. Our game will be devoted to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. That’s why the walls of our classroom are decorated in this way today. You see the geographical map of the country, the flags and the symbols of different parts of the UK, the colorful pictures and posters demonstrating some historical places, places of interest and the portraits of the outstanding people. I do hope that you’ve learn a lot of interesting facts in our English lessons about the geographical position of the country, the climate, vegetation and wild life, the Queen and the British Parliament, the streets and the squares, some of its churches and cathedrals, its palaces and monuments, the national traditions and their lifestyle. I’m sure you’ll certainly get some more useful information today as well.

I asked you to split into two teams. The captain of the first team is …. Let’s greet the members of the first team. Applause, please. Meet the members of the second team with their captain …. And of course, the jury will be all eyes and ears following the game and helping to score the points. Your task is to get as many points as possible. The team with the highest score will be the winner.
The rules of the game are quite simple. You are to respect your group- mates and not to shout. No doubt, winning is the aim, but it’s only a game. Don’t forget that. And now it’s time to begin the game. 3. Содержание игры:

If you don’t know the answer, immediately tell me. I will then ask the next question. One point will be awarded for every correct answer.

б) “Puzzles in the barrels”- «Заморочки из бочки».
The next round is called “Puzzles in the barrels”. You see, this time the questions have been hidden into the colorful barrels. Choose any barrel you like, open it, find the question inside and try to answer it over. You will get one point for each correct answer. (Вопросы спрятаны в контейнеры от киндер - сюрпризов. Игроки из каждой команды поочередно вытягивают вопросы.)
1. What is the nickname of the British flag? Why is it so called? (“the Union Jack”, “Union” reflects the union of England and Scotland in 1606. And “Jack” means the flag flown on the jack staff (a small flagstaff) of ships to show their nationality: “jack” – sailor).
2. (Pointing to the British flag) “The Union Jack” is made up of 3 crosses on a blue ground. It combines the red cross of England, the white cross of Scotland and the red cross of Ireland. The symbol of Wales is not reflected in “The Union Jack”. Why?( Because when the flag first appeared Wales was already firmly united with England. Thus, the Welsh flag is a red dragon on a white and green ground.)
3. “The Beatles” became the internationally famous; they had a lot of hit – records. Several generations of people grew up listening to their songs. Can you name the members of this popular group from Liverpool? (The four superstars were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Star.)
4. What do you know about the traffic in Britain? What should everyone keep in mind while crossing the street in London?( In London you can see many buses, cars, taxis and the London Underground. There are no trams in London. There are two kinds of buses: the red double-decker bus(though they say there won’t be any soon) and the single –Decker. The taxis are black. London traffic differs from that on the Continent. In England they keep to the left, not to the right. In England people say: “If you go left, you go right. If you go right, you go wrong”.)
5. What drinks are served in English pubs? What ages are not served and allowed inside bars? (Amongst others they serve beer, whisky, gin and wine. No alcoholic drinks may be served to young people under 18, and no children under 16 are allowed inside bars.)
6. The British are known to be the world’s greatest tea- drinkers. It is said that they drink a quarter of all the tea, grown on the Earth each year. What does it include? At what time is it? (Also known as “meat tea” it is quite a substantial meal at about 6 p.m. when all the members of the family gather together. In a well-to-do family it may include ham, bacon, tongue, tinned salmon or sausage, cheese and butter, stewed fruit and some pastries: biscuits or buns with cream, honey or marmalade and of course several cups of strong tea.)
7. Who was Robin Hood? (He was a legendary hero of England. He lived in the 12th century. The legend says that he lived in Sherwood Forest with his merry fellows, they took money from the rich and gave it to the poor.)
8. What do the letters BBC stand for? (British Broadcasting Corporation – it has 5 major national radio stations and various TV channels. The BBC receives its income in part from television license fees and also from commercial activities such as selling merchandise.)
9. What are the nicknames of the British capital? What do they mean? (“Albion”(Greek) – this meant “white land”, because the first view of Britain for most visitors was the white cliffs near Dover; “Lyn-din” (Celtic) –“lake- fort” or “river – place”.)
10. Why are hamburgers called so? (Hamburgers got their names from Hamburg, a city in Germany, where they first appeared, but not from the word “ham”- it’s a false analogy.)
11. Some English words have become international and they are frequently used now in the Russian language: tennis, manager, business. Do you know the origin of the word “sandwich”? (The word “sandwich” comes from the name of an English politician John Montague, the Earl of Sandwich (1718-1792) who was very fond of gambling. He invented sandwiches in order to be able to eat without leaving the gambling table. He also gave his name to the Sandwich Islands which are now called the Hawaiian Islands.)
Let’s listen to the jury. How many points did both teams manage to get in this round? What is the current score?
В)“Ask me a question and I’ll ask you” – «Ты мне, я – тебе». It is the name of the next round. Your homework was to think of a question for the member of the opposite team. It’s time to hold the crossing battle. The requirements are: a)read the questions loudly and distinctly; b)the addressee can’t ask his team –mates for a help in case he/she doesn’t know the right answer; c)guesses must be given within 20 seconds. Is that clear? Who will start this round? Well….would you begin, please. Whom do you want to ask your question? (Who will be your addressee?) – Is that right or wrong? Which is the correct answer?
г)“A Dark Horse”- «Темная лошадка». While the jury is busy totaling the score let’s pass over to the next round which is called “A Dark Horse”- «Темная лошадка». This time you are to listen to short stories and guess who this person is. The first student, who puts up their hand, gets the right to answer. If they are wrong, the members of the opposite team can answer the same question and get a point. Mind, no point for the team, if I hear somebody shouting.
1) It was our Russian newspaper “The Red star”, which gave her the nickname “the iron lady”. Who was this woman and what did she do/ (Margaret Thatcher – the first woman to occupy the position of prime minister 1979-1990; Conservative party)
2) He was a famous English dramatist and poet at the beginning of the 17th century. He wrote lyric plays, comedies, tragedies and historical plays. His home town was Stratford-upon-Avon. (William Shakespeare)
3) The Old Curiosity Shop was built in London in 1567. It was described in one of his novels. He is a well-known English writer popular for his memorable characters and his portrayals of the social evils of Victorian England. His works include “Pickwick Papers”, “David Copperfield” and “Oliver Twist”. (Charles Dickens)
4) It took him 35 years to build one of the Royal churches in London. It was designed in a French style which was quite unusual for Britain at that time. He died at the age of 91 and was buried inside his masterpiece – the place where the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana took place.(The architect Sir Christopher Wren)
Can we listen to the jury now? Will you declare the results of the last two rounds?
д.) The next round is called “Hurry up and see!” –«Спешите видеть! » I’ll show you several colorful pictures of some places of interest in London. You have to name what they are and give some interesting information about them. Any member of the team can add something if they want. (Photos for the teams)
Jury, will you be as kind as to comment on the answers of both teams? And what is the current score?
е) I see, today’s game is coming to an end and the last round will turn out to be decisive. It’s called “Trivial Pursuit” –«Гонка за лидером». I’ll read the questions in turn for each team. Again you may interrupt me with the right answer or say “Don’t know” and I’ll read the next question for the opposite team. Of course, the team with the most correct answers wins this round. This time we shall start with the team which has the least points.
