KS1 PSHE Quiz - Manners (Questions)

Manners are words and actions that we can do to help us be nice to others. It is important to be polite and use our manners whenever possible. This quiz will give you examples of how to use good manners.

You should already know quite a few manners which your parents will have taught you, such as saying please or thank you. There are many more to learn as you grow up.

Even as an adult, manners still matter. In the UK, business people often shake hands as a sign of greeting and good manners. In Japan, business people don't shake hands – they bow to each other to show their respect and this is also good manners.

Play this quiz and if you get all the questions correct, then you have a good understanding of manners.
