This KS2 PSHE quiz will help you identify what makes a good listener and why it is important to listen carefully and improve your listening skills.
The most common way for people to communicate with each other is through speaking and listening. Through this method of communication we can learn lots of important information, receive messages, find out how people are feeling and catch up with our friends, but in order for this to work we need to make sure we are using good listening skills. This means that we must show the other person that we are listening and interested in what they are saying and not letting ourselves become distracted, talking over other people or rudely interrupting them. Part of being a good friend requires the ability to be a good listener and letting other people talk instead of always being the one to do the talking. As well as listening carefully to what we are being told we must also make sure that we understand the information we heard and know what we are required to do with that information.
