There are four seasons in the year: winter, spring, summer and autumn.

        December, January and February are winter months. The Weather is cold, usually it snows. Days are short and nights are long. Rivers and lakes are frozen and we can ski and skate. Children like to play snowballs, they like to sledge and make snowmen.

       March, April and May are the spring months. It is a very nice season. The weather is fine, it is warm. There are many green trees in the streets, in the parks and in the yards. Sometimes it rains but usually the sun shines brightly. The birds return from hot countries and build their nests.

        June, July and August are summer months. It is hot or warm. Days are long and nights are short. There are many nice flowers in the parks and squares in summer. June is the first month of summer. We have the longest day and the shortest night in the year on the 21st-22nd of June. July is the middle of summer. It is hot and sun shines brightly. The sky is blue and cloudless. Pupils do not go to school, they have summer holidays. In summer children like to play tennis, table-tennis, football, volleyball, basketball, hide-and-seek, hopscotch, tag and they can swim a lot. August is the last summer month. Sometimes it is cold in August, but there are many mushrooms, berries and fruits.

       September, October and November are autumn months. The weather is changeable. It often rains. You can see yellow, red, brown leaves everywhere. On the first of September Russian children go to school.

       My favourite season is summer. The weather is fine. I don't go to school, I have summer holidays. I have a lot of fun, I go to the forest, and I swim in the river or go to different countries with my parents.
