Energy - Electricity and Safety at Home

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with safety around energy in the home.

But energy can also hurt us. Electricity can be very dangerous, and anything that is very hot can be dangerous. Do you know the rules for staying safe around the home? In this quiz, we look at energy around the home and some rules for helping to stay safe.
