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.














The minute hand is pointing straight up so it's 'o'clock' and the hour hand is pointing at the 6

When the minute hand is pointing straight down, it's half past the hour


The two hands would be very close to each other

Another way of saying this time would be 10.15


Even though there are no numbers on this clock, the minute hand has moved a quarter of the way around so it's quarter past

The minute hand has a quarter of the clock left before it reaches the 12, so it's quarter to


The minute hand is a quarter of the way around the clock face

The minute hand would be pointing straight to the 9 and the hour hand would almost be at 7, but not quite


The minute hand would be a quarter of the way around the clock. The hour hand would be very slightly after the 4

When it is quarter past, the longer minute hand points to the number 3
