Worksheet Overview

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
