Quarter Past and Quarter To Past

This Year 2 Quarter Past and Quarter To lesson covers the prior learning of recognising a quarter, before moving onto the main skill of reading and writing the time at quarter past and quarter to.

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. 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.
