Telling the Time Lesson

We are learning to tell the time.


Use the clock you made yesterday to help you. Get started with the power point below...

Now get practising...

  • Read ‘The Bad-Tempered Ladybird’, by Eric Carle.
  • Look at the page where The Bad-Tempered Ladybird meets the friendly ladybird and ask the children what time they met.
  • Make 5 o’clock, using the hands.
  • Repeat with other times mentioned in story.
  • Reinforce that the big hand always points to the 12 when it is o'clock.


Use the documents below to practise telling the time.
