Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be learning to tell the time using clocks with Roman numerals. 


Here are two clocks.


clock                    clock


One has normal numbers, the other has Roman numerals.

They both show the same time.


The long blue hand is pointing to the 6 or VI, which is halfway round the clock, so the time will be:





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

Half-past four




Let's try an example question together.



What time does this clock show?


clock                    clock



The long blue hand is pointing to the 6 or VI, which is half of the way round the clock, so the time will be:





The short red hand is pointing halfway between the and the 3 or the II and the III, so the time is:

Half-past two




Now you've seen Roman numeral clocks in action, it's time to try out your skills on some questions.
