This week we started to tell the time on analogue clocks. We learnt that:
– when the big hand is pointing to the 12 it is o’clock
– when the big hand points to the 3 it is quarter past the hour (15 mins past)
– when the big hand points to the 6 it is half past the hour (30 mins past)
– when the big hand points to the 9 it is quarter to the next hour (15 mins to)
We also learnt the little hand points to the hours and slowly moves from one number to the next number throughout an hour.
For homework this week you will look at the four clocks below and write down what time you think it is and also explain why you think that is the time.
