Road Safety - Age 7-11

Road safety is an important part of PSHE in KS2. Children are taught how to cross the road safely, and also how to be safe on bikes or in cars. This quiz, written for children in years 3-6, tests their knowledge of road safety.

Roads are very dangerous places and many people are killed on our roads each year. Learning some basic rules when crossing the road, such as Stop, Look and Listen, is extremely important and could even save your life.

There are so many distractions these days, such as personal music players, headphones and mobile phones; and these things can cause accidents. When you need to cross a road, make sure you are as aware as possible, not only looking but listening too. A cyclist is much quieter than a car, but can also cause considerable damage if they hit you.
