This Year 2 Hours and Days lesson covers the prior learning of reading and writing the time to o'clock and half past, before moving onto the main skill of recognising minutes in an hour and hours in a day.

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.
