    Nne instant idea is once you do this topic is use digital and analogue time together so they get the idea
    crucially you need to ensure they understand the correlation of the two and they are often stumped by the written application eg 1 pm = 13.00 hours
    They will struggle on analogue time so make sure they are strong in that.Use clocks and do a search as there are plenty of whiteboard clocks which will cover both the analogue and digital time together
    Try looking on say Topmarks education for ideas
    primary resources which have a lot of work sheets you can use to spark ideas
    Hope that helps a little.........
