Part of being a good friend is listening to what they have to say.

Listening Skills - Age 7-11

As part of the social aspect of PSHE children are taught how to communicate well and get on with others. Part of that is being a good listener and this quiz, written for children in years 3-6 will teach them how.

Speaking and listening are by far the most common methods of communication. By listening to others you can learn lots of important information, like finding out how people are feeling or catching up with your friends. To be good listeners we need to show we are nterested in what people say and not be rude by interrupting them.

Part of being a good friend is letting other people talk rather than doing all the talking. As well as listening carefully to what we are being told we must also make sure that we understand the information we heard and know what we are required to do with it.

If you do not understand what someone has told you what should you do?
Ask them to explain it
Pretend you weren't listening
Make something up
