PSHE Quiz illustration | Health and hygeine
It's important to wash your hands if you have been playing outside.

Hygiene - Age 5-7

Hygeine is a topic covered in the Health section of PSHE. KS1 children in years 1 and 2 are taught the importance of personal hygeine and how it benefits the health of us and of others.

Hygeine means keeping yourself clean. This is very important as it helps us to stay healthy and stops us from spreading germs to other people. I'm sure you know already, but this quiz will remind you how to stay clean and healthy. If you don't keep yourself clean, you will soon begin to smell (and not a pleasant smell). Then you might find people won't want to come near you and you'll have no friends. Staying clean is good for your social life, as well as for your health.

So how much you know about hygeine. Can you get all ten questions right first time? Good luck!
