This week we are continuing to learn how to tell the time!
The website below has an interactive clock that you could use if you do not have a clock at home.
You may need to have a play around with this every day.
Our challenge for this week is to understand how to tell the time to the nearest minute! We are going to start from the very beginning and work our way up!
Your challenge today is to simply make your very own clock face!
You can wind a printable clock face below.
If you are not able to print a copy use your creative skills and use items around your home to make it! Paper plates make a great starting point!
What does your clock face need?
How will your minute and hour hands move?
As you are making your clock think about what we say when the minute hands land on the numbers 12, 3, 6 and 9.
Grab your clock from challenge 1 and place it onto some paper that is bigger as we are going to label our clock!
On the paper label the numbers 12,3,6 and 9.
To help you you may want to say what these numbers mean when the minute hand touches them.
3- Quater past.
6- Half past
9- Quater to
Today we are going to learn how to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes using past the hour times.
These time are all past the hour.
Using the hands you created in challenge one can you show the following times?
10 past One
25 past Six
20 past Four
5 past Seven
To day we are going to look at the left hand side of our clock face. When our minute hand is par the six we say 'to' instead of 'past' We also have to say the next hour.
The clock above shows 35 minutes past 12. To read and say this time correctly we have to use the word 'to' as the minute hand is past the 6.
Starting at 12 and working anti-clockwise label the number 11-7 with your 5 count.
So we read the clock above as 25 minute to 1.
Can you use your clock to show the following times?
Twenty five to Nine
Twenty to Eight
Ten to Three
Five to Ten
Can you read the clocks below?
Watch the video below
Using your clock face from challenge one continue to label it but this time with minutes!
What times can you tell?
Ask an adult to challenge you to tell the time in different ways!
