Unit 2 TIME FOR LEISURE
Lesson 3 FREE TIME
1 Read children’s notes about the parties. Make a list of different kinds of parties.
My friends and I like sleep-over parties. At sleep-over parties my friends eat and play games in my bedroom. Then they sleep at my house. Of course we go to sleep very late because we tell stories and talk about our friends.
Theme parties are my favourite. You choose a theme for your party and your friends wear clothes to match the theme. You can also decorate the party room and have food and music with the same theme. Fancy dress parties, funny hat parties and pyjamas parties are also great!
Outdoor parties are also good but you need good weather! My family and friends often have picnics in a garden or near the river. Food always tastes fantastic outdoors! Then we swim or play games. Sometimes my friends and I sleep in tents after these parties.
Tonight is my birthday party and the theme of the party is Japan. Today my mum is cooking Japanese food. I’m cleaning the house, decorating the party room and making my costume. I’m having fun!
