P3T Week Beginning 12/11/18

This week we have been practising telling the time using o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past. We have been looking at what quarters mean, and we’re getting there!  Some of us have been looking only at analogue clocks whilst others have been looking at digital times. At home, you can help by pointing out what times of day certain things happen and how to recognise this on the clock.
