Year 1 Time - Practical Problems

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 comparing, describing and solving practical problems for time.

In Year one children are given problems on the subject of time in a practical context. An understanding of time, and the ability to solve these problems, begins with an appreciation of how some events can happen more quickly or slowly than others. This will gradually lead on to associating a time scale with an event, and then an understanding of what that looks like on a clock face.

In this quiz your child will be faced with solving practical problems on time.
