telling the time

One of the best resources I have found for teaching telling the time is the sandfields clock.

Sandfields is a secondary school in Port Talbot, Wales. The website is the responsibility of Mr Stewart Davies and contains some excellent resources and games.

It can be used for teaching the time in MFL or in English to primary pupils.

It is easy to use and read and fun for the students.
By clicking on the yellow buttons, you can change the times and the display can be 12 hour or 24 hour clock. There are different levels from very easy to "mega" so it is suitable for learners of all levels.
It will also save you hours of preparation. You won't have to make time worksheets anymore, and it gives a random time every time.
The main screen looks like this:
