I’ve been using this with my kids at school. Is there any chance of getting a version which shows the hours (1-12) in red to match the Hour hand and the minute markers and time wording (five past etc) in orange to match the minute hand? I’ve found it helps the kids distinguish the difference between minutes and hours.

Hey Malcolm, thank you for messaging us and sharing your ideas. I think that would be a fantastic way to add to this resource. Could I please ask that you pop this into a request and the more votes it gets the quicker we can put this into progress.

Hi all, I blew this to A3 and cut it out and used it as a border on my classroom clock. It fits perfectly and is great as a teaching aid also!

Looking forward to using this with my Year 1 class as they are learning about time it makes the 5 minute time interval easy to read.

Can I suggest that the minute hand be made thicker/wider as particularly with young children cutting, it doesn’t leave much strength in the hand for the split pin.

Jade Tout · Nov 29th, 2013

Hi Jade, thanks for the suggestion.

We’ve updated the hands as requested. Please feel free to download the new version now.

Kind regards,
