Telling the Time to the Minute and Hour
Our age 6-7 online students have been learning how to tell the time to the nearest minute and hour on an analogue clock.
Knowing how to tell the time accurately is a very important skill.
The children have been using the language including ‘past’ and ‘to’ when telling the time and have been using Roman numerals on clock faces when answering questions which has helped practise fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving questions.
On a standard analogue clock face, there are 12 hourly increments. These are sometimes represented by Roman numerals.
Roman numerals up to VII represent the hours in a day.
Once children have mastered how to tell the time to the nearest minute, they can progress to telling the time past the hour.
