# ⏰ Tell the time ⏰

Last year, you should have learned how to tell the time to quarter of an hour at least, as this photo shows:

Check you can do this at least, then revise telling it to 5 minutes, e.g. 6:20 or 1:55.

This half term, we will be reading it to the nearest minute, e.g. 4:21 or 12:03.

Today, we also discussed a.m (ante meridian ~ before midday or before noon) and p.m. (post meridian ~ after midday or after noon). Is 12:00 midnight a.m. or p.m…?

Try to name the rooms and what you saw and learnt in each one.
