Children across the UK are enjoying a day off school today for the early May bank holiday.

There's been warm weather for much of the country and forecasters have said Monday could be hottest day this year so far!

How are you spending your bank holiday? Have you been making the most of the sun?

Perhaps you're heading to the beach or having a picnic with your mates?

We want to know what you're up to for the extra long weekend...
