# Time (Year 4)

In Year Four of KS2 Maths, we learn about time! We know seconds in a minute and days in a week. Now, we're discovering decades and centuries. We also master the 12 months and their days. Time can be digital or analogue, and we choose the right unit for events!

Days, months, and years are time units. Can you recall the number of days in each month? Here's a rhyme to help:

Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November,
All the rest have 31, except for February alone,
It has 28 each year, but 29 in each leap year.

Have a blast with this time quiz!
