Ordinal numbers

Thursday 20 January 2022

In Maths, over the last few weeks Year 1 have been busy learning all about ordinal numbers and matching the written word to the number.

To help them learn their ordinal numbers we have done lots of practical activities. They have organised themselves into first, second, third, fourth and fifth depending on the number they were holding. They’ve matched the numeral to the word e.g. 1st – first and they’ve ordered objects too.


We looked at images and discussed which position people were coming in the race. Can your child tell you what position Amy is finishing in the race?
