June is when the summer starts. I like the weather in June because it’s warm and sunny without being too hot. It’s light very early in the morning and it doesn’t get completely dark until about 10 o’clock. In fact, the longest day is 20th or 21st June. There are roses and poppies in the garden. It’s also a good month for strawberries.
June is a stressful month for children and young people because they have exams. For 18-year-olds, the exams are especially important. They need good grades to go to university.
The third Sunday in June is Father’s Day. Mother’s Day is old but Father’s Day is quite a new celebration. It started in America at the start of the last century and came to England after the Second World War. Families meet together and people give gifts and cards to their fathers.
One of the best-known sporting events of the year is the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. It’s also the oldest tennis competition in the world. It usually starts at the end of June and continues into July. Tennis is played outside on grass courts and players wear all white. Many famous people and members of the royal family go to watch. The most popular food served at Wimbledon is strawberries and cream!
