The days at school have been shortened
As the heat rises, classrooms baking
And students moaning, teachers too
And we all pray for the setting sun
When the sting is taken out of the day
And we can breathe a little easier.
It has been so hot in the south of England today; we have had the Met Office put us on a red weather warning which means that there is danger to life.
I think people from other countries are laughing at us a bit because we are moaning about temperatures they normally see every summer. But the UK is genuinely not set up for this kind of weather. Out houses are built to keep in heat, not let it out.
We are all literally dying over here, so please think of us as we melt in our classrooms that have sun in the windows all day, and no air con. I’m going to grasp my God given right as a Brit to complain, and moan for the rest of this week.
