My favourite season is ..
I love the long, hot days and I love the long
holiday. My children like playing in the park and
eating ice creams. I sometimes go to the beach
in Southend with my family. Last year in August I
went to Turkey to visit my sister and my cousins.

I like . best. The weather is


sometimes very beautiful in October. I think the
trees are very pretty when the leaves go red and
brown and yellow. My children like starting in a
new class at school and learning new things.

Sara
I love . I really like
waking up in the morning and seeing new snow
outside in the garden. My children love going
outside and making a snowman. I also like seeing
all my friends and family at Christmas.

My favourite season is I
like it because winter is finished and the evenings
are light again. I dont like the dark evenings. I
love the flowers in the parks and gardens and
seeing the leaves grow on the trees. My children
like playing outside in the evenings again.

Whats your favourite season in the UK? Write two or three sentences.

Weather and seasons


Worksheet 56
Weather around the world
Look at the pictures. What cities can you see? Where are they?
Write the names under the pictures. What is the weather like in each city?

.............................................................................................

.............................................................................................

Now read about the cities. Write the name of the city in the box.

It is always warm or hot in my city. There are only


two seasons. Summer is from May to October
and it is always very hot sometimes 35 or 40.
Winter is from November to April and in the
daytime it is nice and warm usually between
18 and 24. But it is sometimes very cold at
night, so bring a warm jacket if you come in the
winter. There is very little rain in my city, but the
Sahara Desert is very near and sometimes there
are sandstorms. The best time to come is in
January or February because it isnt too hot.

In my city there are four seasons, like in the


UK, but spring and autumn are very short. In
summer the temperature is warm usually
about 23 to 25, but sometimes it is very
hot about 30. The winter starts at the end
of October. It is very cold, sometimes -10 or
-15. In January and February the days are very
short and there is a lot of snow. If you are very
cold you can drink some vodka to make you
warm again! If you come in winter bring warm
clothes and a woolly hat.

Now talk about your city and your partners city.


You

Your partner
