What is it
Telling the Time is an important skill which all children need to learn.
Telling the Time ages 6-8 is an app which enables children to not only practice telling the time but also in understanding time.
The app includes practice of clock times, days of the week and months of the year. Children are helped to interpret times on both analogue and digital clocks, they are taught o’clock and half-past times, quarter hours and times to five minutes.
Players can choose from three different types of activity:
The app contains a certificate to share after each quiz is completed and a results dashboard that tracks all the questions.

What our experts think
Telling the Time 6-8 is a good app for teaching children how to tell the time. We liked the fact that the app not only focused on the actually telling of the time but also the concept of time itself.
The app is clearly presented and easy to use; children can choose what they want to do, therefore setting their own challenges.
We liked the fact that there was an area where children could assess their progress with the mini tests.
It would be even better if...
It would be better if there was a bit more variety; there is a lot for the children to do but it is all approached in the same way.
