Settlements 2

Settlements - cities, towns, villages and hamlets - is one of the topics covered in KS2 geography. This is the second of two quizzes on the subject and it looks specifically at how settlements have developed and how they link together.

Settlements are colonies where people live such as hamlets and cities. Settlements have developed over time and most include constructed facilities such as roads which link them together with other settlements, enclosures for livestock, fields systems for growing crops, ditches for drainage, ponds for waterfowl and fish, parks for leisure, woods and churches. People live together for convenience and to be social.

Find out more about how towns, villages and cities link together and how they have developed in this quiz. Can you get all ten questions right?

  1. What would cause the population of a settlement to increase?
    People like to live quite near to where they work so if a factory was built in a town the people who work there might move to the town as well
  2. What is a bridleway?
    Bicycles are allowed on bridleways but they were originally intended for horses
  3. Which of these connections would not link two cities?
    Footpaths link shorter distances, like villages or parts of a town
  4. Which is the largest type of settlement?
    London is the largest city in the UK
  5. What often developed at the mouth of rivers?
    Ports were important places for sending goods abroad, and rivers provided transport of the goods to the port
  6. What would be needed in a seaside town if lots of tourists started to visit?
    Tourists need places to eat, shop and sleep
  7. What might cause a village to become a city?
    As the population grows, more houses and facilities such as hospitals will be built. There are some cities that do not have cathedrals, for example, Wolverhampton
  8. Which settlement is most unlikely to have a church?
    As a hamlet may just be two or three houses, it is less likely to have a church
  9. In which settlement would you be more likely to find a cathedral?
    The vast majority of cathedrals are in cities
  10. Which of these is NOT a method of crossing a river?
    A canal is a man-made waterway on which boats travel up and down. Stepping stones, like those in the picture, are also a way to cross a small river
