Town and Country - Different Sized Settlements

This quiz addresses part of the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2 in Geography. Specifically it looks at different sizes of settlements, from cities, through towns and villages, to hamlets. It is one of 50 quizzes to help you understand the world around you.

Places people live are called settlements and they come in many sizes. Where do you live? Lots of people live in cities. Do you live in a big city? Or do you live in a large town? Do you live in the suburbs? Or do you live in a small town? Perhaps you live in the countryside - in a village or a hamlet or in a house on its own. In geography you learn about people in different places. This quiz is about the different sizes of settlements and what we call them.
