Worksheet Overview

Here is a clock.

 

clock face 4:30

 

The long blue hand is pointing to the 6, which is half way round, so the time will be 30 minutes past or half past.

 

The short red hand is pointing halfway between the 4 and the 5, so the time is:

 

half past 4 or 4:30

 

 

Here is another clock.

 

clock face 3:45

 

The long blue hand is pointing to the 9, which is three-quarters of the way round, so the time will be 45 minutes past or quarter to the next hour.

 

The short red hand is pointing between the 3 and the 4, so the time is:

 

quarter to 4 or 3:45

 

 

Here is another 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 minutes past.

 

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.

 

 

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

 

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.
