Listening Skills

This KS1 PSHE quiz will test you on listening skills. Lots of people love to talk to each other and this is called having a conversation, but sometimes we are so excited about what we want to say that we don’t always listen to others.

Listening is not just about not talking – it’s about keeping your thoughts quiet as you really take in what someone else is saying. When you do this, you can understand what they mean much more than if you are half-listening and also thinking your own thoughts at the same time.

Do you know how to be a good listener? It can be a wonderful skill to have in life, so practise listening to your friends every day.

  1. If we want to ask a question what should we NOT do?
    It is rude to shout out or interrupt someone when they are talking
  2. If you want to talk to someone but they are talking to someone else what should you do?
    If you want to talk to someone and they are talking to someone else you can wait quietly until they have finished and then talk to them. This way you won’t be rude or upset the other person
  3. If you cannot hear what someone is saying what could you do?
    If you can’t hear what is being said you can use your manners and ask if they could please speak a little louder. This way they know you are trying to listen but are finding it hard to hear them and they can then speak a little louder
  4. If someone is telling us a story what should we do?
    When someone tells you a story you should listen to what they have to say and save your questions for the end. You might find that the story is very interesting
  5. If you do not understand what someone is talking about what could you do?
    If you do not understand what someone is talking about you can ask them questions. This will show that you were listening to them and that you are interested. It will also give them the chance to explain it to you
  6. If you are talking with a friend what should you do?
    When you are talking with a friend it is a good idea to take turns when talking - that way you can both share your ideas and you can both listen to each other’s ideas too
  7. What should you NOT do when someone is talking to you?
    When someone is talking to you it is important that you listen and pay attention. You will not be able to listen if you are singing a song so try and stay quiet until they have finished talking
  8. Which of these does NOT make a good listener?
    Someone who talks when others are talking is not being a good listener. To be a good listener you should look at the talker, ask relevant questions and wait for your turn to talk
  9. Where should we look when we are listening to someone talk?
    When someone is talking to us it is polite to look at them. This lets them know that we are listening and interested in what they have to say and helps us to concentrate on the conversation
  10. What part of our bodies do we use for listening?
    We listen with our ears and we speak with our mouths
