Telling the Time Challenge

This week in maths we have been busy learning to tell the time to o’clock and half past.  The children have been working on explaining their reasoning e.g. I know it is 3 o’clock because the long hand is pointing to the 12 and the short hand is pointing to the 3.

We have also been using vocabulary related to time focusing on before, next and after.


Practice telling the time to o’clock and half past at home.  You can email myself and Mrs Amblin any photos to show this!  You could ask an adult at home help you find some good online games linked to telling the time.

Extra challenge:  Why is being able to count in 5s a useful skill to have when you are learning to tell the time?
