School rules are there to help you learn.

Golden Rules in School - Age 5-7

The Social Education part of PSHE is there to help children get along with others. That does not mean just their friends. While they are at school children must follow certain rules. These are there to protect children and also to maintain order. This quiz looks at some of the more common rules in schools and explains why they are there, and why they must be followed.

Somewhere in you classroom you are almost certain to find a list of 'Golden 'Rules'. These are not there to stop you having fun. No, the point of these riules is to help you to learn and to keep you safe.

In this quiz we test whether or not you know why we have these rules. Even if your school does not have any 'Golden Rules', they are still good to learn.

Why do you think we have Golden Rules?
Because everyone loves rules
To fill a gap on the display board
To help every child learn and be safe
So the teacher has a reason to tell you off
Outside of school, adults abide by a set of rules but these 'rules' are called the law. Rules and the law help everyone live in peace and harmony together.
We look after the property of others but why?
So that we can be better at maths
Because it doesn't belong to us and might mean a lot to them
So that we can be better at English
So that we can be better at PE
This includes school property like rulers and rubbers. Treat these items the way you would hope your favourite toy would be treated - with respect and care.
'Listen to each other' is a Golden Rule but what does it mean?
Listen to everyone - teachers and children
Listen only to your friends
Do not listen to the teaching assistant
Listen only to the teacher
Everyone is worth listening to, not only because it's respectful but because you can learn from everyone.
'We are gentle' is a Golden Rule but what does it mean?
Be gentle unless someone hits you, then you can hit them back
Be gentle to everyone
Be happy
Push people around
It is very important to remember the saying: 'Two wrongs don't make a right.'
'Treat others how you would like to be treated' is a Golden Rule but what does it mean?
Play with others and be kind as that's what you would expect
Be mean to everyone and hope everyone is nice to you
Go trick or treating on Halloween
Buy everyone a treat like chocolate
The last point is that if you are mean to others, the chances are they will be mean back. If you're nice, they will be nice back too.
Being helpful is a Golden Rule but why?
So you can all cheat off of each other
Because then you find out all the gossip and know exactly what others are doing
Because it means you will get a free chocolate bar
Others will appreciate it and you never know when you might need help back
There's a difference between being helpful and telling your friend an answer. If your friend needs help with work, you can try and explain it but if that doesn't work then they should ask a teacher.
'Always be honest' is a Golden Rule but what does it mean?
Be on top of something
Tell lies all day long
Tell the truth at all times
Tell the truth when it suits you
Honesty is the best policy!
'Always put your hand up' is a Golden Rule but why is it important?
Because it is good exercise
Because shouting out is fun
Because then the teacher can see who would like to answer the question
Because the teacher likes you to use your arms
If you have your hand up, the teacher can see who knows the answer. It's also a good idea not to shout the answer out as sometimes the teacher will want to let other people try.
'We work hard' is a Golden Rule but what does it mean?
Work hard in all your lessons
Work hard at tidying
Only work hard in PE
Spend a few days trying then rest on the other days
The reason you are there is to learn, so always try your best!
'Tidy up after yourself' is a Golden Rule but why?
If nobody tidies up then the whole place will be a mess, which is fun
It's good exercise
Because you are the school cleaner
If nobody tidies up then the whole place will be a mess and toys will lose their parts
Also, if you tidy up as you go - it'll be easier for you.
