1 Hour Later
Teaching students how to read and calculate time is an essential skill that helps them navigate everyday life. To support your teaching efforts, we are excited to introduce our free worksheet called "1 Hour Later." This engaging resource is specifically designed for year 3 and year 4 students who are learning to read and calculate time on both analogue and digital clocks.
What Is the "1 Hour Later" Worksheet?
The "1 Hour Later" worksheet provides a handson approach to learning how to measure and calculate time. With this resource, students practice reading times to the minute and understanding the relationship between analogue and digital clocks. This fun and interactive worksheet helps reinforce students' skills, making it easier for them to manage time in reallife scenarios.
How to Complete the "1 Hour Later" Worksheet
The worksheet consists of three pages, each containing nine clock activities that require students to fill in or draw clock hands. Here's a breakdown of what students will do:

Reading Analogue to Digital Time: Students start by looking at the given time on an analogue clock. They need to identify what the current time is and then calculate what the time will be exactly one hour later. They write the answer in the digital clock format, reinforcing their ability to convert between the two formats.

Drawing Analogue Clock Hands: The next task involves looking at the time displayed on a digital clock. Students then draw the appropriate hour and minute hands on an analogue clock to match the time shown. This helps them understand how the positions of clock hands correspond to digital time.

Practicing Reading Times to the Minute: The worksheet includes times that students need to read precisely to the minute, such as 3:24 or 5:47, challenging them to pay attention to detail and accurately depict time.
Why Use the "1 Hour Later" Worksheet?
This resource provides an excellent way for students to develop time calculation skills through practical exercises. Here’s why it’s a great addition to your classroom:

HandsOn Learning: Students actively engage with timetelling by writing and drawing, helping them better understand and retain the concepts being taught.

Improves Time Calculation Skills: The worksheet focuses on calculating what the time will be one hour later, reinforcing their ability to perform basic time calculations that are crucial for everyday life.
