Time is ticking

We have worked hard at trying to remember how to tell the time in both analogue (thinking about how we say a time) and digital (how it is written in numbers). Most of us feel confident when we look at a clock that has the digital time of 09:20 am we know we would say: ‘It’s twenty past nine in the morning’

However, if the digital time was 09:40 am some get confused because we now have to talk about the hour that the minutes are going to.  ‘It’s twenty to ten in the morning’.

To help we know we need to practise looking at analogue and digital clocks at home and telling the time. We need our families to help us to. Look at the previous post on time and the video below.
