  1. Hi, I’m thinking of buying CGP KS2 Geography Study Book and wondered what you thought about it. I can’t find contents information anywhere – is it strong on physical geography?

    • Hi Jenny, I don’t really like the layout of CGP books myself. I also feel they skim through topics too much. However, the KS2 Geography workout Books (1 and 2) are worth getting. They provide good practice in Geography skills. The textbook alone does not do the job adequately imo, but when paired with the workout books, it’s pretty decent.
