PSHE quiz illustration | Politeness and manners

Manners - Age 7-11

Part of the social aspect of PSHE taught to children in KS2 is the importance of manners. This quiz, written for children in years 3-6, will provide them with some examples of when and how to use manners so that they can practise being polite.

Our manners are the way we bahave towards others and they can be good or bad. Having good manners means being polite. This is always a good idea because being polite helps us to get along with people. If you have bad manners people may think that you are rude or even aggressive.

Some manners should be used all the time with all people. Others are more likely to be used in specific situations. One example is with a teacher to indicate a certain level of respect for their authority. Have a go at this quiz and see if you know your manners.
