Good morning Year 2,
As part of our new Maths learning topic, we will be learning all about ‘Time’. To practice, have a read to help you learn everything you need to know ready for when we start our learning on this.
When telling the time, it is important to look at the hands on the clock. On a clock, there is a hour hand and a minute hand. There is also a seconds hand.
When the minute hand points to 12, this is known as o’clock. When the minute hand points to 6, this is known as half past.
The minute hand and the hour hand on an analogue clock tell us what the time is.
Time is a unit which can be measured. There are many different ways we can measure time. This includes seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years.
Clocks are used to measure time: hours, minutes and seconds.
Do you know how many seconds there are in a minute?
How many minutes are there in an hour?
How many hours are there in a day?
Look at the clocks below. Write down the time that each clock shows.
Can you match these daily events to their times?
Which could be at:
- 7 o’clock in the evening?
- Half past 12 in the daytime?
- 8 o’clock in the morning?
