Worksheet Overview

Here is a clock.

 

clock face 10:20

 

Count the minutes in 5s as you go around until you reach the long blue hand.

 

 

The long blue hand is pointing to the 4, which is 4 × 5 = 20 minutes, so the time will be 20 past something.

 

The short red hand is pointing between the 10 and the 11, so the time is:

 

20 past 10 because it is 20 minutes past 10 o'clock. or 10:20

 

 

Here is another clock.

 

clock face 2:35

 

Count the minutes in 5s as you go around until you reach the long blue hand.

 

clock face 2:35

 

The long blue hand is pointing to the 7, which is 7 × 5 = 35 minutes, so the time will be 35 minutes past something or 25 minutes to something.

 

The short red hand is pointing between the 2 and the 3, so the time is:

 

25 to 3 because there are 25 minutes until 3 o'clock or 2:35
