Weekly Practical Activity – Telling the time!

Use a paper plate or cut out a circle of card. Ask an adult to help you find the middle. Draw lines to divide the circle into quarters. Label the top 12, the bottom 6 and the sides 3 and 9 so that you have started to make a clock. Put in the rest of the numbers. Make the hands and attach just the shortest hand. If you don’t have a split pin to attach a hand, you could use a small piece of spaghetti with blu-tak on either end. This is the hour hand.

Where will the hour hand need to be for 2 o’clock, for half past 2, 4 o’clock, half past 5, 6 o’clock, half past 7, 9 o’clock?
Can you tell the time using just this hand? Explain this to someone.

Add a minute hand where does this go for o’clock and half past?
