Rules and Laws
If you break a rule in town such as stealing, a police officer will take action.

Rules and Laws

In KS2 Citizenship, you will learn about rules and laws. These are also known as regulations. Rules and laws are everywhere at home, in school, even when you play a game. A regulation is a rule made by an authority. Breaking rules and laws is likely to get you into trouble at the very least!

There is a common saying - ‘rules are made to be broken’ - but is that just another rule?! You can challenge or question a rule if you think it’s unfair or just plain silly (there are a lot of silly rules, especially ones that are very old and no longer apply to our era), but it’s wise to keep on the good side of the law!

This quiz is all about rules and laws - how they are made, why we have them and how they can be changed.
