The Clock: This week we will concentrate on ¼ past and ¼ to. If possible use a clock at set the time, allow the children to orally give the answer. The children may be confused with working out the answer. It is a good idea to casually ask them throughout the day to look at the clock and tell you the time. Draw a clock and get the children to draw hands on the clock.
