In this worksheet, students read an analogue clock face and give the time in 24-hour clock format.

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Measurement

Curriculum subtopic:   Convert Analogue/Digital Time

Difficulty level:

### 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    half past 6

which is 0630 in 24-hour clock time if it is the morning and 1830 if it is the evening.

24-hour clock time uses 4 digits and no symbols.

NB.  The evening time is 12 hours later than the morning time (6 + 12 = 18)

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    0631   or         1831
