What’s the time Mr Wolf?

We have been practising how to tell the time in year 2.

Here are our Perfect Playtime Patrol group practising “What’s the Time Mr Wolf” to play with their friends on the playground.

Here are some of the ways the teachers have been asking the children for the time:

“We will be stopping in 5 minutes. What time will that be?”

“When the long hand reaches the 12 it will be playtime. What time will that be?”

“What time is it now?”

Children in Year 2 should be able to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes. One of the best ways to learn this is to use an analogue clock and practise counting in 5s from the 12, back around to the 12 again. The analogue clock also helps the children to see the fractions of the hour at quarter past and quarter to and half past.

Take a look at this clip to revise telling the time and have a go at the quiz to test your knowledge.
