Europe

One of the topics looked at in KS2 geography is the continent of Europe. This includes not only the countries that can be found in Europe but also some of the features, such as mountains and rivers.

Europe is the continent of which the UK is a part. It is the world's second-smallest continent. The continent has a rich and varied history which isn't surprising when it houses 50 countries! Ancient Greece, in Europe, is the birthplace of Western culture. Both World Wars were largely focused in Europe. The continent also has some world famous features like the Alps or the Scottish lochs.
