Comparing Objects Lesson

This Year 1 Comparing Objects lesson covers the prior learning of counting and describing groups of objects, before moving onto the main skill of comparing two groups of objects within 10.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
