Friday 22nd May

Fact of the day:

During World War 2, foods were rationed. As a result, Dairy Milk came off the shelves and was replaced by a 'Ration Chocolate', which was made from dried milk powder. 



Start your day off with some exercise. Choose either to follow the Joe Wicks live workout or a yoga routine from the Cosmic Kids Yoga link!



Reading for at least 20 minutes today, independently or to an adult. Don't forget, you can still quiz on books at home!


Today we are going to look at the 24 hour clock. 

When we look at a clock face, the numbers around the edge are always 1-12. They look like this:

A digital clock works slightly different. Look at the following digital clocks, the BOTH say the same time:

You will notice that the 01 part, has become 13.


In a day, there are 24 hours. We say that the first 12 are in the morning, and the second 12 are in the afternoon. This means that once we have reached 12 o'clock in the afternoon, we continue counting on. So 1 o'clock on a digital clock is 13:00. 


Have a look at the clock below, it will show you what the hours would be on the digital clock.

The numbers in red around the outside, show you what the hour would be on a digital clock. 


So, if it was quarter past 3:

In the morning, this would be 03:15

In the afternoon, this would be 15:15


If it was half past 6:

In the morning, this would be 06:30

In the afternoon, this would be 18:30



Let's think about 12 o'clock.


If it was 12 o'clock in the morning (when you should be asleep) it will be 00:00

When it is 12 0'clock in the afternoon, it will be 12:00


It is 00:00 in the morning because this is when the new day starts and then the hours go on from there.
