Marking Summer Solstice?

Did you know that the 21st June marks Summer Solstice? The solstice has been celebrated since ancient times and is still celebrated today.

It represents the first day of summer and takes place on the longest day of the year, when there are the most daylight hours and the Sun is at its highest in the sky.

After the summer solstice, the days get shorter until the winter solstice when they start to get longer again.

Let’s Start with our Summer Solstice Resource PackSummer Solstice

To mark the occasion, we’ve some fantastic resources to share with you!

Some of the resources focus on the solstice itself, the reasons for it and how it is celebrated. Others focus on the seasons, specifically summer, but all are well worth a look!

The pack is free to download right here.
