This week, you will learn how to tell the time:
- o'clock and half-past
- quarter past and quarter to
- tell the time to 5-minutes past the hour (5 past, 10 past, 20 past, 25 past)
Note to grown-ups: Time is quite a tricky concept for children. I've found this article which you might like to read: https://www.busythings.co.uk/blog/teaching-children-how-to-tell-the-time-hints-and-tips/#readingclocks
Learning about time relates back to some of our prior learning; about fractions (halves and quarters) as well as counting in fives. Thank you.
If we were in school, then you would be using mini teaching clocks to help you - instead, you can make your own teaching clock using the print-out below. There is also a really good online interactive clock, see the VISNOS link below.
If you are confident with telling the time, can you make up some of your own word problems? For example: Mrs Kelleher started working at 9.00am and she spent 30 minutes on Year 2's class page. What time did she finish her work?
