In maths, we have been learning to tell time. Use this video to recap on converting analogue time to digital time.

You could practise telling time at home by creating a simple timetable with your daily activities and record the time (e.g. What time did you get up? What time did you have your breakfast? Did you play outside in your garden? What time and how long for? What time did you read a book? etc.)
