Ordering Numbers and Objects Lesson

This Year 2 Ordering Numbers and Objects lesson covers the prior learning of representing numbers before moving onto the main skill of ordering numbers in ascending and descending order, using comparison symbols and language.

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. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
