# Comparing Numbers Lesson

This Year 1 Comparing Numbers lesson covers the prior learning of counting and sorting objects, before moving onto the main skill of comparing numbers within 10.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill.
