Quiff, Boot and Genie visit the Clock Beast to find out what happened in the past and what will happen in the future. The Clock Beast shows the times on both his digital and analogue clocks, and adding or subtracting time is demonstrated.

Show the first five seconds and ask the children what the time is. What time is five minutes more and before this? Can they write it in 24 hour format? Using handheld clocks and other apparatus, children can subtract or add on different minutes of time; written in digital and analogue format. Children could share the difference with examples of what's happened in the past. Create a human timeline as a class, putting events in chronological order based on different times in the day. Children can use their clocks and explain the difference from one to another.
