# Time (Year 5)

Year Five students learning KS2 Maths can easily understand different units of time, like seconds and millennia. They'll pick the right unit to measure how long events last. Plus, they'll learn to read time on digital and analogue clocks, and switch between AM and PM on a 24-hour clock.

Clocks come in two types: digital and analogue. Digital clocks use numbers, while analogue clocks use words. For instance, 12:00 on a digital clock is 12 o'clock on an analogue one. Some digital clocks follow the '24-hour' format, using numbers like 03:00 for 3AM and 15:00 for 3PM.
