This week we are starting a new unit of work in Maths focusing on Time.

In this unit we will be:

  • Recapping the Year 1 objective of telling the time to the hour and half past the hour.
  • Reading and writing the times 'quarter to' and 'quarter past' on an analogue clock.
  • Reading and writing the time to 5 minute intervals on an analogue clock.
  • Learning that there are 24 hours in a day and 60 minutes in an hour.
  • Practising converting minutes to hours and minutes.
  • Finding and comparing durations of time.


Here is a knowledge organiser which features key vocabulary and visual representations for our learning during this unit. (I have attached it as a PDF below so that you can print it out if you wish.)
