KS1 Maths Quiz - Year 2 Time - Telling the Time to 5 Minutes (Questions)

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 to 5 minutes.

Once children in Year 2 are familiar with telling the time to the hour, half hour and quarter hour, they begin to recognise how to tell the time to 5 minutes. This may be linked to their work on the five times table, as they link this to counting around the clock in 5s to work out what time it is to five minutes.
