*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 being able to write the time to the hour, half past the hour and quarter past/to the hour.*

Once children have mastered telling the time to the hour and half past the hour, they begin to recognise quarter past and quarter to the hour as well. When telling the time they learn to understand the position of the minute hand particularly, but may also understand that the hour hand also has a slightly different position depending on the time.
