We’ve been learning how to tell the time on an analogue clock.
For o’clock times, the minute hand points to the 12 and the hour hand points to the hour that it is.
The time on this clock is 3 o’clock which can be written as 3:00 in digital time.
For half past times, the minute hand points to the 6 and the hour hand points in between two numbers. The number that the hour hands has gone past must the number that tells you the hour.
The time on this clock is half past 8 which can be written as 8:30 in digital time.
