Sorting Objects Lesson

This Year 1 Sorting Objects lesson covers the prior learning of early sorting based on characteristics, before moving onto the main skill of sorting objects.

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.
