Telling the Time

by Bhavini Pandya June 23, 2020

Are you learning to tell the time? Have a go at creating this What’s in my tray? activity to help you read different times.

  • Maths (KS1)
  • Time
  • Telling the time to the hour and half-past the hour.

What to do:

  • First, find an empty container that has an edge to it.
  • Next, write out the numbers, draw the minute and hour hands and cut out.
  • Arrange the numbers around the container to match a clock face.
  • Place the minute and hour hand in the centre.
  • Move the hands around to make different times.
  • Can you read times to the hour?
  • Challenge yourself with half-past the hour.
