There are plenty of devices used to measure time. Watches and clocks are two of the familiar ones. Did you know a sundial also tells the time? And if you want to boil an egg making sure the yolk is still runny, what do you use? An eggtimer! You may not have heard of candle clocks or water clocks, but candle clocks go back thousands of years!
Time to start the quiz!














For example: John spoke to Peter yesterday; he is now speaking to Andrew and he will speak to Dave tomorrow. Time isn't just for 'telling the time'. In grammar, time is divided into past, present and future

Seven days in a week. The ancient Roman and Greek weeks had eight days


February has the least number of days: 28 days

The number of months NEVER changes. D'oh!


52 weeks in a year

This means there are two fortnights in a month


Noon is midday: 12 o'clock is the middle of the day

If the number of minutes passes '30', the time is read as 'so many minutes (less than 30) TO the next hour', e.g. '6:35' is read as twentyfive to seven. It's 25 minutes because 35 minutes have already passed: 25 + 35 = 60 = the number of minutes in an hour. You need only use the word 'minutes' if the number of minutes is NOT a multiple of 5, e.g. '3:42' is read as eighteen minutes to four because 18 is NOT a multiple of 5


If the number of minutes doesn't pass '30', the time is read as 'so many minutes (less than 30) PAST the give hour, e.g. '2:20' is read as twenty past two. You need only use the word 'minutes' if the number of minutes is NOT a multiple of 5, e.g. '3:22' is read as twentytwo minutes past 3 because 22 is NOT a multiple of 5
