You might have seen two different types of clocks: digital and analogue clocks.
Digital Clocks have digits that tell the time (like \(0,1,2,3,\dots\))
Using Digital Clocks to Tell the Time
These are the easiest clocks to tell the time from. They show you the time using numbers:
Let's look at some examples:
Using Analogue Clocks to Tell the Time
This is a little more complicated, but you can do it! These clocks use their hands to show us the hours and minutes.
The hour hand (sometimes called the little hand) shows us what the hour is:
The minute hand (sometimes called the big hand) shows us how many minutes past (or to) the hour it is. The minute hand takes 5 minutes to move from one number to the next.
Then we use them both together to find out exactly what the time is:
The best thing to do is to practice telling the time as much as possible. Think about:
- What time is it when you get up?
- When do you have breakfast?
- When does school start?
- What time is lunch time?
- What time does school finish?
- What time do you have dinner?
- What time do you go to bed?
