What time is it Mr Wolf?

We have been concentrating on time for the last couple of weeks in Maths, trying to become more confident in reading both analogue and digital clocks. A couple of children in the class are really confident with this however some still need regular practise. We have focused on o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to the hour and now need to progress to telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes. The expectations for Year 3 is that they can do this confidently and also tell the time in both 12 and 24 hour. Obviously, we will continue to look at this in school, however it is something that can definitely be embedded at home, in everyday life! By encouraging your child to tell the time independently, this all important life skill will soon become second nature.
