One of the main aspects of KS2 Geography is learning about Places.

This section also helps children to learn about continents and countries in Europe and The World by viewing images and taking part in fun interactive activities.
Children can investigate the important issues regarding Environmental Change, including pollution, conservation and climate change. The section includes quizzes, games and interactive activities relating to topics such as recycling, ecological foot printing, animals and wildlife. There are also several case studies to help children learn about real-life Geography issues.
The Weather section helps children to understand about types of weather through a range of interactive activities. They are also able to learn about the effects of the weather and weather around the world. In the Water section children are able to study the different uses of water, learn about rivers and coasts, find out about the water cycle and discover ways of conserving water.
Part of the Key Stage 2 Geography curriculum is to learn about different Settlements so this section includes information and activities relating to land and building use, village settlers, British place names and settlements in Europe.
