Do you know the rules that will get you safely across the road?

Rules Outside of School - Age 5-7

One part of PSHE taught to KS1 children is following rules. In this quiz, written for children in years 1 and 2, we look at some of the rules we have to follow when we are not in school. In particular, we focus on the basic safety advice given about fires, crossing the road and more. These basics are normally covered at a cross-curricular level or in specialised PSHE lessons in school.

Rules are everywhere and are designed to keep us safe. In school, you have the Golden Rules but outside of school there will be rules you follow without realising it. Rules on crossing the road, on being polite, on avoiding accidents. They are all for the safety of you and of others.

Have a go at this quiz and see how many rules you know.

What do your parents have to do when they see a red traffic light?
Turn the car around
Drive through it
Get ready to go
This is a rule and law of the road.
You walk through the door and can see someone coming your way. What should you do?
Hold the door open for them
Hold the door until they get to it then slam it in their face
Walk off and assume they can hold their own door
Quickly close the door on them
This is a general rule of kindness that you should do inside and outside of school.
If you see a fire, what should you do?
Run for your life
Scream then faint
Pull any emergency alarm and call the fire brigade
Get some marshmallows, wait for them to melt then eat them
This is true for any place, any time and any country.
Who makes sure everyone follows the rules outside of school?
The police make sure you abide by the law and will arrest anyone that doesn't.
Which of these is not a rule or law?
Don't steal
Don't set fires
Don't call 999 for fun
Don't eat too many doughnuts
Every day you follow rules but don't realise it - you are just being a good citizen!
Which of these is not against the law?
Leaving a shop without paying for items
Throwing a brick through a window
Paying for items when you leave a shop
Stealing a car
Rules are there to make life fair for everyone. These are rules that involve the law but many rules are just out of kindness.
What do you do when you want to cross a road?
Look left and right and make sure the road is clear
Run across the road
Look left and right and walk out even if the road is not clear
Just walk across the road
Some rules are just general common sense, like this one.
You can't kick people in school as it's a school rule but outside of school you can - is this correct and why?
Yes - kicking can be done outside of school
No - you should never kick in school or outside of school because it's a horrible thing to do
Yes - kicking is allowed between 5pm and 7pm
No - you should never kick in school or outside of school because then aliens will take you away
Many of the rules you follow in school can and should be followed outside of school.
You're with your mum and decide you want to go to a different area of the shopping centre, so what do you do?
Stand still and refuse to move until you get what you want
Ask your mum if you can go, if she says no ask to go together when she has finished
Ask a stranger to take you
Run off
Sometimes in life we have to compromise - this means we have to do things we may not want to do.
A stranger approaches you and asks you to come into the car. What should you do?
Say no thank you and enter a shop or find your parent/guardian and tell them straight away
Say you can only go for a quick ride
Jump into the car
Scream at them to go away
If you don't know someone, say no and then try to get away from them as quickly as possible.
