### QUESTION 1 of 10

Dave knows all about the seasons. He said to his friend Rob, "There are two seasons in a year. The football season and the cricket season!"

Rob thinks that Dave is wrong. He is certain that there are more than two seasons.

Rob is right! There are four seasons: Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer.

In Autumn, the amount of time it is light becomes less, the leaves start to change colour and fall off the trees.

In Winter we have colder weather, sometimes snow and frost, the trees have no leaves and the amount of time it is light during the day is at its shortest.

In Spring the weather usually turns warmer, trees begin to grow their leaves, plants start to flower and young animals such as chicks and lambs are born.

In Summer the weather is usually warm, trees have full, green leaves and the amount of time it is light for during the day is longer.

• Question 1

Complete this sentence.

There are four seasons in one year: spring, summer, autumn and ____________.

Winter
EDDIE SAYS
The fourth season of the year is known as winter.
• Question 2

During which season do we usually see leaves falling from trees?

Autumn
EDDIE SAYS
Autumn is the time of year when we think of leaves turning pretty shades of red and gold before they fall to the ground.
During the autumn months the days get shorter and the weather starts to get cooler. Halloween and Guy Fawkes (or fireworks) Night are celebrated during autumn.
In the United States, autumn is known as the fall.
• Question 3

Which season do we often associate with new life such as newborn lambs and budding flowers?

Spring
EDDIE SAYS
Spring is the name of the season which we associate with new life.
Spring is made up of the months: March, April and May. During these months we celebrate Easter.
• Question 4

Christmas occurs in December. We often associate Christmas with snow and ice.

During which season is snow and ice most common?

Winter
EDDIE SAYS
Winter is usually very cold, and many parts of the UK often get snow during the winter.
• Question 5

As we move from winter into spring and then into summer, what happens to the amount of daylight?

The amount of daylight goes up.
EDDIE SAYS
During the spring and summer you will probably notice that the amount of daylight we receive is longer than in autumn and winter.
Spring and summer are great because the weather is usually better and having more daylight means that there is more time to play outside after school.
• Question 6

During the summer many of us go on holiday to the beach, swim in the sea and eat ice cream.

Why do we do this more in the summer than in the spring?

It is warmer in summer than in spring.
EDDIE SAYS
The summer holidays are great; six weeks off school, long sunny days and lots of ice cream.
Many people go to the beach in the summer months to play, sunbathe and swim in the sea. We tend to do this in the summer rather than spring because the weather is usually better and the temperature is a little bit warmer.

March, April and May are known as the spring months in the UK. September, October and November are known as autumn.

Which three months make up summer in the UK?

August

June, July and August are the three months of the year that we call summer. These months are often the warmest and the sunniest.
• Question 8

Which of these things happens during spring?

Leaves begin to grow on the trees
Birds build nests
EDDIE SAYS
In spring, nature 'wakes up'. Animals find mates and trees come back to life, growing leaves. Some flowers which grow from bulbs burst into life, for example snowdrops and daffodils.
• Question 9

What are the clues that autumn is here?

Many trees lose their leaves
The days are getting shorter
EDDIE SAYS
There are many changes which we can observe. The days are getting shorter, so it starts getting colder and the trees will lose their leaves.
