https://www.topmarks.co.uk/time/teaching-clock

L.1.: To tell the time to the nearest minute on an analogue and digital clock.

Use Sheet 2  Maths Lesson 1

Solve these time riddles using a clock or the interactive clock:

1. In 30 minutes it will be 3 minutes past 1 o'clock. What time is it now /

2. 15 minutes ago, it was 4 minutes until half past 2. What time is it now?

 

Write you own time riddles.

Lesson 2: To understand Roman numerals on clocks.

The Romans used diiferent numerals than we do. We call what they used ' Roman Numerals'. 

The numbers still mean the same as our one to twelve.

Have a look at the clocks and you will see 1, V and X are in all the numbers. 

Here is a chart with Roman numerals to give you an overview but for reading the clock we only need  to 12.

1 is 1

2 is 11

3 is 111

4 is 1V

5 is V

6 is V1

7 is V11

8 is V111

9 is 1V

10 is X

11 is X1

12 is X11

 

Have you worked out the pattern yet ?
