Half of having a conversation is listening to the other person.

Listening Skills - Age 5-7

Getting along with others is the crux of Social Education. And one thing that makes getting along with others easier is if we have good converesational skills. In this quiz, written specifically for KS1 age children in years 1 and 2, we look at the art of listening.

Talking is a part of life. It's how we share our thoughts and ideas with other people. We call this having a conversation. But conversations are not just about talking. They are also about listening to what the other person has to say. Sometimes we are so excited about what we want to say that we don’t always listen to others.

Listening is not just about not talking – it’s about keeping your thoughts quiet as you really take in what someone else is saying. When you do this, you can understand what they mean much more than if you are half-listening and also thinking your own thoughts at the same time.

Which of these does NOT make a good listener?
Someone who waits for their turn to talk
