Maths - telling the time
Children initially learn the concept of time by various times of the day, such as bedtime and teatime. These times are then related to actual times on the clock and the progression is then made to reading timetables and organising their day.
For guidance on teaching methods and how maths is taught in schools, please see the menu on the right.
Here are some worksheets to help your child learn to tell the time. It is good to introduce this concept with games such as 'What time is it Mr Fox?'. You can then work through a worksheet verbally discussing times during the day such as breakfast time. school time, play time, story time and home time.
