Thank you for the huge range of resources provided in this pack to teach children the tricky area of telling the time. Pretty much everything you could want is included, which saves an enormous amount of teacher time searching elsewhere and all are presented in a clear, colourful and attractive way. The range of worksheets covers so many learning objectives as well and the supporting resources such as guide sheets and template sheets blank clock faces have all been really useful, and can be used with children of all ages as well.To improve further, could perhaps do with some resources using Roman Numerals on clock faces, and maybe some that involve converting between the different units of time, but otherwise an incredibly helpful teaching pack.
I love this teaching pack. Bright and clear visuals with an abundance of activities that each resource can be used for. I use the pack with ASD pupils and although the level of some of the tasks in the pack are a little too complex for my pupils, they are easy to adapt and/or be broken down into smaller, more manageable tasks. So glad I subscribed. Value for money and quality resources. Keep up the good work please.
A great resource that I use on a daily basis. The analogue and digital time poster is always on display next to the physical clocks to allow the children independence in learning to read the time.
I have been using this pack with my students for a few months now and I can honestly say it is fantastic. There are plenty of sheets for children to use and enough variety to cover concepts again if needed, but without children repeating the same work. Each idea in teaching time is covered well and children can 'take their time' working through it until the grasp the idea! This pack is a great help. Thank you!
I have used the time pack very successfully with a variety of year groups. The posters, cards and information in the pack are all very easy to use as they are bright, easy to read, a quality learning tool. I printed off and laminated all the cards and posters.Once my unit was completed the laminated cards were left out in my maths area of the classroom for the children to use when they had a spare moment.They are fabulous and I wouldn't be without them.......I love all the hands on....children love being able to use and hold the cards,posters.....much better than sheets or online activities. Thank you Teaching Packs!
These resources are so good to use. The children really love them as they are so bright and clear. The detail in them is exceptional. The packs contain everything you need to teach time to a group of children. The posters and displays look brilliant and enable the children to access the resources from the working wall. I love these ....
I used this pack for my SEN children and they loved it easy to use would definitely recommend
Great resource that I have used with students with special needs. resources are very colourful and clear. We have used the activities to play a pairs game and used it for looking at what time of the day does this happen. The train timetables have been great for learners to work out time which helps them transfer this to real life situations. Some of it too tricky for my learners - what time is it in 8 minutes time but easy to adapt and use the idea.
This is a great resource. It includes real world problem solving activities. Resources are suitable across key stage 1 and 2. There are a lot of good resources for display and providing children with reminders. Mark was kind enough to adapt one of the resources for me to use.Thanks very much!
Teaching children how to tell time has a reputation for being a challenging endeavour. While not the easiest lesson to impart, it can also be endlessly rewarding, as time-telling skills can significantly increase a child's cognitive abilities. Thankfully, using your pack, which was fun, colourful and resourceful made guiding my youngest child towards time-telling mastery. It has made it alot easier by simply appealing to his innate creativity and interests. By incorporating this superb teaching pack aswell as my own resources which I taught my other three with, telling the time concepts were quickly grasped and understood. Learning about time can be easy and fun especially with excellent resources such as these to which I am very grateful to use.
