Today in 5B, I set some children a super challenge which was to work out if a baby was 1,000,000 seconds old, how old it would be.

The children worked together, applying their knowledge of tim, to solve this very challenging question.

Well done 5B, some brilliant work here π Have a go at these challenges. Whoever has a go, I will choose a name at random and they will get jelly beans π
