THE PROCEDURE OF THE LESSON
Explaining new theme
ACTIVITY 1 MAKE PHRASES WITH THE WORD “SCHOOL” AND
GUESS THE MEANING
E.G. NURSERY SCHOOL
NOW I SHALL DIVIDE YOU INTO 4 GROUPS. THERE ARE 16 CARDS THAT ARE CUT
DOWN. YOU SHOULD CHOOSE ONE OF THEM AND FIND YOUR GROUP. THEN YOU WILL
TRANSLATE TEXT THAT I GIVE.
1-group There are four types of schools in the English and
Welsh education system - nursery, primary, secondary and
private schools. Scotland has its own education system, which
is different. Children start school at the age of five, but there
is some free nursery – school education before that age. The
state nursery schools are not for all.
2- group They are for some families, for example for families
with only one parent. In most areas there are private nursery
schools. Parents who want their children to go to nursery
school pay for their children under years old to go to these
private nursery schools. Primary school is divided into
infant school (pupils from 5 to 7 years old) and junior
school (from 8 to 11 years old). In some areas there are
middle schools instead of junior schools, which take
pupils from 9 to 12 years old.
3- group Primary schools have from 50-200 pupils.
Secondary schools are usually much larger than primary
schools and most children – over 80 per cent - to go a
comprehensive school at the age of 11. These schools are
for all. Pupils do not need to pass an exam to go these
schools. These schools are large. They have from 1,200 –
4- group School lasts all day in UK, so there is only one
shift. In some areas there are grammar schools. Pupils must
pass special exams to go to these schools.
Some parents prefer private education. In England and
Wales, private schools are called public schools. They are
very expensive. Only 5 percent of the school population
goes to public schools.

E.g. Kindergarten in the USA is different from
kindergarten in Uzbekistan and in England and Wales.
Children in the USA go to kindergarten when they are 5
years old, and in Uzbekistan children under 6 years old
can go to kindergarten. Nursery school in England and
Wales is a little different but the same as kindergarten in
Uzbekistan. Children under 5 years old can go to nursery

who/which or that/where/when.
