Good morning Year 2!
We hope you are all continuing to keep safe and well, hopefully you have had a chance to get out in the garden and enjoy the sunshine over the last few days
Here are your tasks for today...
I hope you managed to find everything you needed to make your clock yesterday. Today we are going to recap telling the time to the hour.
Remember we said you need a long twig and a short twig? Well that’s because they both have different jobs on a clock. On a clock, they are called hands, funny because a clock can’t give us a wave!
Your long twig, is the long hand on your clock, which is called the minute hand. Did you know there are 60 minutes in 1 hour?
Your short twig, is the short hand on the clock and that one is called the hour hand. Did you know there are 24 hours in day?
Put your long twig (the minute hand) on your clock so it is pointing to 12. That is telling you it is ‘o’clock’. Now put the short twig (the hour hand) on your clock pointing to 9. The hour hand is pointing to 9, the minute hand is pointing to 12 which means o’clock so the time is 9 o’clock. That’s the time when we tidy up our morning jobs in school and start our maths lesson!
Now try moving the hour hand to 12. Both hands are pointing to 12 now. So the hour hand is pointing to 12, the minute hand is pointing to 12 which means o’clock, so the time is 12 o’clock. That’s the time we tidy up ready for our class novel before lunch.
Have a look at the clocks below. Can you make your clock show the same time? Can you tell your grown-up what time your clocks say?
You can send us some pictures on Weduc of you making the time on the clocks and write in the message what time it is.
We will see you again soon
Love from the year 2 team x x x
