## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. There are 60 minutes in an hour.
2. There are 24 hours in a day.
3. Understand that the clock face shows hours and minutes on the same scale.

### Common misconception

Children may understand a day as the amount of time in which they are awake.

The lesson counts and names each of the 24 hours, using morning, evening and night. Take time to discuss what the children will typically be doing during these hours, including when they will usually be asleep.

• Hour - A unit of time equal to one of 24 equal parts of the day.
