This resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or SEN pupils working on recognising/learning analogue time. It is based on reinforcing the concept of “Half Past”. There are three different activities in this pack – match analogue time to all words time (“half past two”); match analogue time to words/number time (“half past 6”); match analogue time to digital time (“5:30”).
Cut up the sheets into 36 separate cards and laminate them individually. Pupils should read the time on the analogue clock on the left side of each card and place a peg on the correct equivalent time on the right side of the card from the three choices given.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can read the time. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of the concept of matching analogue time. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
This pack should be split up into three separate packs.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
