Thursday 14th May – Telling the Time

This week we will be beginning to learn how to tell the time. You will be learning o’clock and half past.

Here is a help guide, which you can have a look at to see the new vocabulary.

Today you will be learning about half past the hour and also recapping your o’clock knowledge from yesterday.

Watch this video to begin understanding how half past the hour works.

Work your way through these examples to get your head around working out the half past times before it is your go!

Y2 Activity

Click here to access the activity for today. You need to write down the times you see on the clocks and then have a go at drawing the hands on the clock to show the time.

Remember: short hand is the hour hand, long hand is the minute hand and remember that the hour hand goes in the MIDDLE when you are working out half past! Don’t forget you can use your clock to help you out.
