KS1 Maths Quiz
When both hands are pointing to the 12, it's 12 o'clock.

Year 1 Time - Telling the Time

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with telling the time to the hour and to half past.

The first experience young children have of telling the time is usually when they learn how to say what hour it is (one o'clock, two o'clock and so on) by recognising the longer minute hand is pointing to the 12. This knowledge of telling the time gradually extends to recognising that when the minute hand points to the 6, it is half past the hour (half past one, half past two and so on).
