Children can join Percy the caterpillar to practice skills involved with time. As a program designed for Key Stage 1, spoken instructions, colourful graphics and animations make this ideal for unsupervised use in the classroom.
The six activities feature both analogue and digital clocks and encourage the player to participate in activities that involve reading the time, setting a clock to given times, finding a clock with a given time, placing events in the correct order and working out time differences.
