About this Website



This website has been designed to provide children aged 7-11 with a overview of the geography of the world.

It contains information about a range of localities across the globe and the issues they face, as well explanations of the processes which shape these environments.

This is a collaborative website authored by those individuals listed on the home page and is run by Simon Haughton.

If you wish to wish to contribute, please contact Simon Haughton.

All text is deemed to be factually true at the time of publishing, however you are welcome to contact us to report any mistakes/suggest improvements.

This website is still a work-in-progress so only certain sections have been written so far - more material is being added all the time.

I hope that you enjoy reading and learning about the geography of our planet using this website!

Guidelines for Editing
  • Content should be relevant and appropriate to children aged 7-11.
  • Short paragraphs are preferred.
  • Language should be readable for an average KS2 child - specialist vocabulary can be defined using brackets.
  • Key words/phrases can be emphasised by making them bold and appear in a dark brown font colour.
  • The use of numbers/bullets is encouraged for long lists to improve clarity.
  • Images to insert can be found on http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page (ideally they should be inserted by copying/pasting the provided HTML code as this automatically attributes them).
  • Only upload photographs/clip art images from your computer if they are your own and you are allowed to publish them online.
  • No off-site links (apart from image attributions) - I want the site to be self-contained.
  • No embedded content (e.g. videos and animations) - again, I don't want to make the site too cluttered.
