Telling the time

24th Mar 2024

We have been busy here in Senior infants learning how to tell the time. We
started off by revising times of the day such as morning, afternoon, evening and then began to focus on identifying the time on clocks at one hour intervals e.g one o clock, two o clock.

Here is a poem we learned to help us further understand the concept of time: 

The Big Hand is busy
But the Small Hand has power.
The large one counts the minutes.
But the Little One names the hour.

When both Hands stand at the top together,
It's sure to be Twelve O'clock. But whether
That's twelve at noon or twelve at night
Depends on if it's dark or light.
