Can your child tell the time?

posted 23 Nov 2016, 13:17 by Anna Rust

Recently children in Cedars have been learning to tell the time - a tricky concept which requires a lot of practice.


Children in year 3 are expected to be able to:

·       Tell and write the time from an analogue clock (to the nearest minute).

·       Have an understanding of 12-hour and 24-hour clocks.

·       Record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours.

·       Use vocabulary such as o’clock, a.m./p.m., morning, afternoon, noon and midnight.

Children in year 4 are expected to be able to do all the above plus be confident with converting between analogue and digital times.
