The United Kingdom – How much do you know about the amazing country we live in?

Let’s explore settlements

Things you could do –

  • Sort the pictures of settlements – see document below
  • Watch the bbc bitesize clip about settlements and then complete the quiz at the bottom
  • Choose 2 settlements and compare them. What are the positives and negatives for living there?
  • Quiz yourself on settlements – can you get all the answers right?

  • A new settlement is needed in the UK because the population is growing. Look at a map of the UK and decide where it should go. Explain why you have made that choice and what amenities the settlement will have. You could represent this as a map or as a picture with labels.
  • Research how Colchester has grown and changed over time.
