A recent article from Sky News has shown that teenagers and those taking higher level qualifications are having inordinate trouble being able to use and decipher Analogue Clock Faces

Secondary schools are reportedly having to ditch traditional clocks for digital ones because pupils cannot tell the time.
A teacher told a conference that GCSE students have complained that they are unable to read clock faces during exams, The Sun reported.The disclosure at last month’s Partners in Excellence conference is said to have been backed-up by other teachers, with Tory MP Rob Halfon saying the revelation should serve as an “alarm call”.
The Maths National Curriculum states that children aged between five and six should be taught to tell the time to the hour, half past the hour, and be able to draw the hands on a clock.
The unnamed teacher had told delegates: “It’s amazing the number of students I come across in Year 10, 11 and sixth form who do not know how to tell the time.
“They do not necessarily have watches any more and they have mobile phones with the time on.”

Time Teacher Alarm clock

Like most parents, you are probably keen to ensure your child’s learning continues when they get home from school, especially when it comes to time teaching. Although now part of the National Curriculum, most parents still feel it’s mainly their responsibility to teach their children to tell the time. However, particularly with children of primary school age, it can be hard to get them to concentrate when school is over and all they want to do is play.
In addition, in the digital age it’s becoming increasingly difficult for parents to teach time-reading skills in the first place, let alone to continue the learning at home. After all, most gadgets and appliances only have digital displays which aren’t at all conducive to time teaching.
So, how do you keep your children engaged in learning the time at home without it becoming another ‘battlefield’?
Our Easy Read Time Teacher alarm clocks are the perfect solution for teaching time as well as for extending your child’s learning at home. Not only do they have an analogue time face but they have also been developed especially for children’s bedrooms and with time teaching in mind. Available in two colour schemes – rainbow or red & blue – the clocks have a gentle glow which acts as a night light as well as a silent movement to aid sleep. They also come in both the Past & To or 24-Hour teaching systems for you to choose from.
