Ordering Numbers Lesson

This Year 3 Ordering Numbers lesson covers the prior learning of comparing and ordering numbers and objects within 100, before moving onto the main skill of ordering numbers and different representations up to 1,000.

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.
