Hi, I’m Freya.

My Uncle Bob has been all over the UK to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Let’s find out what he has seen!

In the UK, in the Northern Hemisphere, we are very familiar with the four seasons.

Spring is the start of the year. It is when the temperature increases and things start to grow again after the cold days of winter.

After spring comes summer. This is usually the warmest season. It is when crops grow and we expect the sunniest weather.

Then comes autumn and the temperature starts to cool down again.

Winter is the coldest, darkest time of the year.
