Britain

In KS2 children will be taught geography. One of the subjects they will look at is the island of Great Britain - where in the world it is and the countries, cities, counties and culture which make Britain up. This quiz will test children's knowledge of the place where they live.

Britain, or Great Britain, is the largest island in the British Isles. It is comprised of three countries - England, Scotland and Wales. These countries are divided into counties. The smallest counties in Great Britain are Rutland and the island, the Isle of Wight. There are only two towns in Rutland - Oakham and Uppingham. The Isle of Wight has nine, despite it being smaller.
