Hip Hop Around the Clock


2nd class hove been working on their time telling skills since they got back from their Christmas holidays. We have been learning to tell the time in quarter-hours on both the analogue and digital clock. We made our own clocks and have been hip hoping around them getting lots of practice telling the time.

Here are the clocks that we made and our hip hop song. We stopped on the hour and hopped forwards and backwards in quarter and half hour intervals πŸ™‚

Today we undertook some timed challenges…. Take a look at what we,be been up to….

We have a nice clock display on our wall to help us recognise where the clock hands are at important times during the day.

  7. Hi Miss Breen.
    My mum told me about this clock it is called the Speaking Clock. It can tell you the exact time whenever you want it. Me and my Mum looked it up and it was 06.30.17. My Grandad used to call the Speaking Clock every Sunday to set his clocks and watch.
