Year 3 Telling the Time to the Minute

This Year 3 Telling the Time to the Minute lesson covers the prior learning of reading the time on an analogue clock to 5 minutes, before moving onto the main skill of telling the time to the nearest minute on an analogue clock which uses either numbers or Roman numerals.

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.
