In Year One children sequence events in chronological order using language [for example, before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening]. They recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years. They are also taught to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times.
They compare and order different times using terms such as earlier later and solve simple problems involving time.
In Year Two children compare and sequence intervals of time. They tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times. They also learn the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day.
