Reading the time often proves to be a tricky subject for children and there are several reasons for this. One is that many children seldom see a clock face other than a digital display. Another reason is that we have various ways of saying the same time.
For example: 9:50 can be said as ‘nine fifty’ or ‘ten to ten’.
This worksheet asks children to write times using digits, write times in words using minutes past and minutes to the hour as well as working out times a quarter or half hour before and after the time given. These types of question are very popular in the Year 6 SAT papers so there is no harm in using this page with older children who are struggling with understanding and answer time questions.
