    1. My class teacher told me to arrive before six forty-five, the time of our tuck shop "opened".

    "told" = main verb of the sentence

    "the time of our tuck shop opened" = noun phrase as appositive of "six forty-five".

    Therefore, it is grammatically incorrect to have "opened" appearing in the phrase as a finite verb in past tense.

    You should rewrite the phrase as:

    (a) the opening time of our tuck shop; or

    (b) the time when our tuck shop opened.

    2. I rushed to the relevant sections to grab the "required" items.

    "rushed" = main verb of the sentence

    "required" = past participle of "require" acting as adjective to modify "items".
