Year 2 O'clock and Half Past

This Year 2 O'clock and Half Past lesson covers the prior learning of telling the time to the hour and half past using an analogue clock, before moving onto the main skill reading and writing the time at o'clock and half past.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step here and here. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
