This KS2 PSHE quiz will help you understand the importance of manners. It will also provide you with some examples of when and how you can use manners so that you can practise being polite.
Manners are words and actions that we should use when interacting with others. They are ways to show people that we are polite and courteous. It is important to be polite and use our manners whenever possible because it helps the flow of conversation, encourages other people to interact with us and trust us, and results in friendly conversations. If manners are not used people may think that you are rude or even aggressive. Sometimes the meaning of your words or gestures can be misunderstood and can put people off from interacting with you. Some manners should be used all the time with all people. Some manners are more likely to be used in specific situations with individuals other than friends or family. One example is with a teacher to indicate a certain level of respect for their authority.
