### Understanding that clocks have more than one scale

In this lesson, we will study the measure of time on clock faces. We will look at different examples of time displays, and investigate the need for two different scales on a clock face to represent minutes and hours. We will also look at time related vocabulary such as 'past' and 'to'.

### Reading analogue time to the nearest minute

In this lesson, we will learn to read an analogue clock to the nearest minute. We will use vocabulary around 'to' and 'past', and utilise linear time lines to compare times on clocks to number lines.

### Telling the time to am and pm

In this lesson, we will practise using 'to' and 'past' when telling the time from an analogue clock, and we will learn about the terms a.m. and p.m. We will use these new terms in sentences related to time and relate them to a linear time line.

### Telling 'minutes past' on a digital clock

In this lesson, we will learn how to tell the time on a 12-hour digital clock, and compare the method with reading an analogue clock by matching times.

### Reading and ordering time (presented in different ways)

In this lesson, we will learn to read and order the time on both analogue and digital clocks and match identical times across the two versions. We will also discuss a.m. and p.m. on digital clocks, and read and organise different times in order of earliest to latest in written form.

### Exploring units of measured time

In this lesson, we will learn the different ways to measure intervals of time. We will select the most suitable unit of time for different measures, for example, seconds for short tasks, and minutes for longer tasks. We will recap the different units used in time and their equivalencies. We will look at different time measuring tools.

### Measuring time in seconds

In this lesson, we will estimate the time it takes to do certain tasks, and then time them using time measuring tools such as stopwatches. We will then compare our estimate with our results to help us determine how long a second is in real time.

### Calculating and comparing intervals of time

In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate and compare intervals of time when given the start and finish times. We will look at TV schedules and cinema times to help us calculate the length of programmes and films based upon their start and finish times, using number lines to help us.

### Applying knowledge of time to solve problems

In this lesson, we will solve and model several challenging word time problems. We will use many of the skills covered in this unit to help us determine the length of events, identifying digital times, and matching times using roman numerals.
