This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with telling the time and understanding units of time.
Once children in Year 2 are familiar with telling the time to the hour, half hour and quarter hour, and can also tell the time to 5 minutes, to test their understanding they will be expected to solve simple problems to do with time. These problems will focus on the units of time, hours, half hours and quarter hours, and will be set in real life contexts such as journeys or TV programmes.
This quiz will help children to understand the units of time and so help them to tell the time.














Half an hour is the same as 30 minutes

It's 30 minutes, or half an hour, until 8 o'clock


1 hour later than 5 o'clock is 6 o'clock

If it takes half an hour to get to school, this is the latest time I should leave


15 minutes and 15 minutes makes 30 minutes altogether, plus the hour at the park

30 minutes plus 30 minutes makes 60 minutes, which is 1 hour


60 minutes is the same as 1 hour

Counting from 9 to 3 gives us 6 hours altogether


20 + 20 = 40, so Sam takes 40 minutes to get there

Half past 11, half past 12, half past 1, half past 2
