## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. Know the order of numbers will not change and will always be said in the same order (stable-order principle).
2. Know we can order numbers by counting.
3. Know we can order numbers using our knowledge of 'greater than' and 'less than'.

### Common misconception

May identify which number is greater than or less than another but then sequence incorrectly.

Encourage children to visualise each number on a number line so they can see their order. Print a number line for constant use in class.

### Keywords

• Smallest - The smallest number is the one that comes before all the others in the count

• Largest - The largest number is the one that comes after all the others in the count

• Greater than - Greater than means having a larger value than another number or set

• Less than - Less than means having a smaller value than another number or set

Here, we revisit ideas of 'greater than' and 'less than'. We use these terms for uncountable nouns. In the next lesson, countable nouns are compared and therefore 'more than' and 'fewer than' are used. Use these terms correctly throughout the day.
