Road Safety - Age 5-7

Road safety is one of the topics covered in PSHE lessons for KS1 children. In this quiz, written specifically for children aged 5-7, we teach them about the rules of road safety for when they are a pedestrian and a passenger so that they can make the correct decisions and keep themselves safe at all times.

You want to stay safe don't you? Well, road safety is very important. Road safety is all about keeping safe when using the roads, either crossing them on foot or travelling on them in vehicles. There are rules we have to follow to help keep us safe - these are sometimes called the Green Cross Code.

Have a go at this quiz. If you can score 10 out of 10 then you already know how to keep yourself safe on the roads.
