Children find reading and showing time on analogue and digital clocks extremely difficult. If your child is struggling with these worksheets please spend time with them reading and showing times on actual clocks. If possible follow this sequence: o’clock – half past – quarter past & quarter to – minutes past (in 5 min intervals)- minutes to (in 5 min intervals) – minutes past (to the nearest minute) – minutes to (to the nearest minute) etc. Once your child is able to do these with an analogue clock repeat the same sequence with a 12hr digital clock, and then with a 24hr digital clock.
There is a great online visual clock at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/time/teaching-clock which can be used to show a variety of analogue, 12hr and 24hr clock times.
