Learning About Time

We have been learning about time in our recent maths lessons.


Our learning focussed on:

  • Identifying times on analogue and digital clocks
  • Recognising times that are important to us
  • Using 12 hour and 24 hour time
  • Reading timetables
  • Calculating elapsed time.

One of our tasks involved students planning their perfect day. They had to record the times they would do each activity in their perfect day AND calculate the elapsed time from the first activity.

As an extra challenge, Rocker and Emma created their own time quiz! They collaborated to come up with some elapsed time problem solving questions using Google Slides and they would love everyone to attempt their challenging quiz below. Good luck!



What do you think of Rocker and Emma’s quiz?

How has your time knowledge improved?

Do you have a favourite time of the day or night?

List some “time words” in your comment.

  1. Hi Miss Jordan,

    I really like the quiz it is really cool, good job Emma and Rocker on doing the quiz.

    My time knowledge has really improved especially with elapsed time, I think I am pretty good at time I also really enjoy it, my favourite time is 5:00pm because that was the time when I was born.

  2. Dear 4B,
    I hope you have a challenge figuring out our questions. Yes I know some will be hard but just give it a go. The answers will be shown in class.

    • Hi Emma,
      Well done to you and Rocker on the maths quiz. Some of those questions definitely stumped me! Just one question for you what does adios amigo mean?


    • Hi Emma
      I think you have challenged the grade and if you haven’t you challenged me.

      My favourite time is 12:00 because it’s usually the hotes time of the day.

  7. To the class and Miss Jordan

    The my perfect days was very fun putting times in and drawing to.
    I really liked the task we did on Monday.

    And also last week when we made fractionle me posters. Sticking the paper on to that was great fun.

    Our class is working well.
