Summer brings the warmest months of the year. It also brings tourists, lovely beach weather and for children and students, Summer Holidays.
Flowers & Animals
This is the best time of year to see some animals. Why? Because it’s the hottest season of the year and, in the UK, there has been a dramatic increase in temperature over recent years.
If you live by the coastline, you will probably see a lot of seagulls (like you do all year round) so our best advice is: when you’re eating food outside, eat leaning against a wall. Then the gulls will have to do some pretty amazing flying to get your food!
Also, there are many different kinds of wildlife wherever you live: even if you’re in the middle of Tokyo!
Tourists and Holidays
What do you think that people do in the summer? Most of them go on holiday whether it’s somewhere in their own country or abroad. But, at the moment, due to events in recent months, prices for holidays to Turkey and other bordering countries are very low. However, prices from most locations in Spain and Portugal have increased.

Things are a bit different in the Southern Hemisphere: instead of summer, they’re having winter.
