II. Revision of the previous unit

Pupils, what was our previous unit? Do you remember? Yes, right. It was Health!

Now, look at the pictures. There are some children with different aches, give them advices, using the modal verb ‘should’.


III. New theme (types of transport)

Now, we know what to make when we had some aches. We are fit now!!!

When we are in good health, we have to go to school. We must do it. Why we are going to school? Yes, that’s right. To know everything, to get knowledge at first.

 Our new unit is about travelling.  Open your copybooks and books, write down the date of today and the theme “How do you get to school?”

Who tells me what we need for travelling? Yes, transport.

Look at  the blackboard, what do you see?

-Types of transports, name them!

— a helicopter, a car, a taxi, a ship, a boat, a motorbike, a plane, a train, a bus…

(pupils name them, than repeat, after match the words with pictures)


Answer my questions!

—         How do you get to Astana? (by plane or train) (explain using of preposition ‘By’)

—         How do you get to Aktau? (by bus or taxi)

—         How do you get to foreign countries? (by plane, by ship)

—         And how do you get to school?

—         As for me, I usually get to school on foot or walking, sometimes by car, but never by plane or train!

—         If we live in a big city we get to school by car, by bus. But here, in Kuryk, your school isn’t far away from your home, so you get to your school on foot or walking.


Pupils answer the question: ‘How do get to school?’


IV.  To explain adverbs of frequency

Now, open your books at page 121 Ex 1 . Listen to me attentively, than you’ll repeat


Find here adverbs of frequency…. Sometimes    and   never…..


1.     Adverbs of frequency used before the main verb in the sentence.


I usually get up at 7 o’clock

I don’t often go to the cinema

She never eats bananas

We always watch TV in the evenings

I sometimes go swimming


2. These adverbs always used after verbs “to be” and “to do”.


I am never late.

They are always polite


3. We can use Sometimes   and usually in the beginning or in the ending of the sentence.


Sometimes I play tennis.                         I play tennis sometimes

Usually he goes to school by bus.           He goes to school by bus usually.


If you understood this, do this task:

Ex.5 p122

I have just come from school

He rarely eats chocolates

Oops! I nearly fell over!

I can always understand him

The teacher never comes late

I really missed my mother
