Timing in seconds and comparing times

Year 3 predicted which event would take the longest amount of time: jogging around the playground once, answering 10 multiplication questions or doing 25 star jumps.  22 children guessed correctly - the maths questions!  Jogging and star jumps were surprisingly close - only a couple of seconds apart but jogging was just longer!
