Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Clocks have an hour hand and a minute hand (and sometimes a second hand)

 

 


The hour hand is pointing to between 6 and 7, so we know it is after 6 o'clock but before 7 o'clock.

The minute hand is pointing to 6 which is really 5 x 6 = 30 minutes.

 

So the time shown is    6:30 or    half past 6

 

When we move on 1 minute, the hands look like this.

 

 

The hour hand has moved a tiny tiny tiny amount.

The minute hand has moved forward one minute.

So the time shown is    6:31
