Telling the time perseverance

Today, Bluebirds have been persevering with telling the time this week and today have been calculating the 24 hour clock. Children solved times using different methods as they found calculating minutes to the hour challenging.

Huey said “I solved the question by seeing that 40 and 20 go together as it is a number bond to sixty so I know that 10.40 am was also twenty minutes until 11 o’clock.

Sophia said “I know the numbers are in five. Knute intervals so I counted in fives around the numbers to calculate there was 20 minutes left until it was 11 o’clock.

Evie thought how to explain the question to her partner and decided to support her by drawing a number line to find the difference between 40 and 60.
