Sorting and Comparing maths for Early Years planning

This hands-on unit of work will have your Early Years children sorting and comparing like masters in no time! This unit has been placed in the Autumn term for Reception as sorting should be taught early on. The activity ideas can be used or easily adapted for pre-school children as well. Sorting and comparing helps children to look at relationships and attributes, as well as how rules apply to sets. Further down the line, children who can sort confidently have one of the building blocks for algebraic thinking securely in place. Click HERE to save 20% with the entire 12 week Autumn term bundle, which includes Pattern, Numbers 0-10, Sorting and Comparing, Measures and Shape. If you are following the Early Maths Mastery long term plan, this is Unit 3 and falls in week 9 of the Autumn term. The planning focuses on the 40-60 months EYFS framework statement of using the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare sets. This understanding of bigger and smaller numbers will lay the foundations for the mental number line that children will develop as they progress as mathematicians.

Comparing the city and the countryside - KS1/KS2

This lesson is part of Exploring the United Kingdom, a Geography unit designed for KS1 and lower KS2 (Y2-4). This lesson encourages students to identify geographical features found in the city/countryside and think about the similarities and differences between urban and rural areas in the UK. First the presentation shows small segments of images from around the United Kingdom and challenges students to work out whether they are from the city or countryside. Children then complete a Venn diagram-based activity which can be done in two ways: Group activity: In pairs or trios, children sort images of the city and countryside using a Venn diagram. This can also be done using two PE hoops and makes a nice classroom display. Individual activity: Students sort city and countryside vocabulary using a Venn diagram: Easier – Students sort 12 city/countryside words Harder – Students sort 18 city/countryside words If you like this resource, we would appreciate a review! We will happily send you a free resource in return for a review or useful suggestions/feedback. Contact us at For more Geography resources, check out

EYFS Size OrderingQuick View

EYFS Size Ordering

A simple powerpoint to encourage EYFS children to talk about and compare size. It asks the children to sort the various pictures (which follow children's interests/Goldilocks theme) into size order. It is easily adaptable to suit your own class needs and can be easily differentiated. The children are asked to simply drag the pictures into the correct order and are then given a practical task to complete. I print out the size ordering arrows to support the children when ordering. EYFS SSM areas covered: Begins to use the language of size (22-36 months) Orders two or three items by length or height (40-60 months) Children use everyday language to talk about and compare size (GLD) Other areas such as C&L and PSED can be covered depending on how the adult leading the session runs it.
