Downloadable (ideally free) timer?

    Does anyone know of a downloadable (ideally free) time that works visually as well as numerically on the IWB? I would like one that also has a 2 min warning type function.

    It needs to be suitable for a year 2 class.

    Thank you.

    Thank you both. I no longer have smart on my laptop so can't use those. (Don't ask!)

    I was hoping for one that shows a sand timer or something for those who wouldn't understand the numbers. I have a few like this and when working in ability groups it would be nice for them to know what is going on as well.

    Like the egg timer...maybe just use it as a 'when the timer finishes then you have 2 mins to tidy up' rather than a two min warning.

    Fenella, thank you so much. My class loved the sheep alarm on the timer today.

    One of my children with very major SEN was fascinated by the idea of a sheep in the laptop (especially as there is no picture) but was also extremely proud of himself to deduce that it must have been a robotic sheep after all.
