My favourite seasons are spring and summer. Which are yours? Try writing some sentences in cursive/print about it. Look at the following example:
My favourite seasons are spring and summer. The weather is getting better and the evenings are longer. I see lots of birds, animals and flowers.
When I lived in Australia, it felt like summer weather for most of the year! Living in London felt like that sometimes too! My brother and uncles live in Australia and it is actually autumn there now, because they live in the Southern Hemisphere.
Do you remember learning about penguins earlier in the year, who mostly live in the Southern Hemisphere? We live in the Northern Hemisphere, so our seasons are the opposite to Australia.
I know that some of your families are living in different parts of the world too.
Can you find somewhere close to those parts on the below map? This is more about finding the continent and discussing the meanings of some of the different symbols.
Can you figure out which area/countries are near the red flowers on the map?
Enjoy the bank holiday weekend and I'll be back here on Tuesday.
