Time - Telling the time to 5 minutes


Today we are looking at telling the time to 5 minutes. 


When the minute hand on a clock moves from one number to the next, it has moved 5 minutes.

There are 12 numbers around the clock face, and each interval is 5 minutes, so there are 12 × 5 = 60 minutes in an hour.


Watch the video below which explains how we tell the time to 5 minutes.
