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.














In 5 minutes, the minute hand will have moved to the 1, which shows us five past the hour

In 20 minutes, the minute hand will point to the 4, which shows us twenty past the hour


The minute hand has moved on 5 minutes from the 'o'clock' position, so it is 5 past the hour

The minute hand is 10 minutes past the hour


Each point on the face is 5 minutes and 4 x 5 = 20

The minute hand has moved 25 minutes past the 'o'clock' position


It will take the minute hand 5 minutes to reach the top, when it will be 12 o'clock

It is 10 minutes until the minute hand is back at the top


The minute hand has travelled 10 minutes past the 'o'clock' so it's ten past eight

There are ten minutes until it's two o'clock
