# Compare and Order by Denominators Lesson

This Year 6 Compare and Order by Denominators lesson covers the prior learning of comparing and ordering fractions less than one, before moving onto the main skill of comparing and ordering fractions by their denominator.

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.
