This week your child will be learning to tell the time to the hour (O’ Clock). In order for them to develop their understanding of this new concept, make a habit of pointing out how long it takes to do things in everyday life such as cleaning your teeth, eating breakfast or completing a school activity. You could make a point of timing some of your child’s favourite activities, for example do some baking together and set the oven timer, let them know that their favourite programme will be on the TV in 10 minutes or set an alarm or stopwatch.
Please read the ‘Telling the Time’ PowerPoint below to your child and encourage them to have a go at telling the different times to the hour.
Using the first activity sheet below, encourage your child to write the time shown on each clock.
Challenge: Using the second activity sheet below, encourage your child to draw the times shown on each clock.
On Time Game
Set the clock at O'Clock on an analogue clock face. Your child will need to listen to the questions carefully and move the hands on the clock accordingly.
