By the time they reach Year Six, students of KS2 Maths should be competent with all aspects of time. They will know the values of different units of time, from the number of seconds in a minute to the number of years in a decade, century or millennium. Consequently they will be able to choose suitable units for measuring time in varying circumstances. Year Six children should also be able to write and tell the time on 24 hour and 12 hour digital and analogue clocks.
Years, decades and even a century - these are the larger measurements of time. There is an even bigger one, a millennium. If someone lives for over a century, they have had what's known as 'a good innings' which is a cricketing term. If someone tells you they have lived for over a millennium, they are lying!
Do you know how many years are in a decade, a century or a millennium? Take this test and find out what you know about time.
