WALA: years, months, weeks and days.

During today's Zoom session we will be learning about the relationship between YEARS, MONTHS, WEEKS and DAYS.


We will be applying our knowledge of our multiplication facts to help us calculate and periods of times from MONTHS to YEARS and from DAYS to WEEKS.

Helpful tips!

One Year = 365 days

Leap Year = 366 days

A Leap Year only occurs every FOUR years - the last Leap Year was 2020

12 months = One Year

52 weeks = One Year


One way of remembering how many days are in a year is the following rhyme:

30 days hath September,

April, June and November,

All the rest have 31,

Except February, 28 days here,

Or 29 in each Leap year.
