KS1 Maths Quiz - Year 2 Numbers - Ordering to 100 (Questions)

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with comparing and ordering numbers from 0 up to 100; using <, > and = signs.

In Year 2, children learn to use the symbols <, > and = to help them order and compare numbers. They understand words such as 'more than', 'less than' and 'equal to' from their work in Year 1 and can apply this to numbers up to one-hundred.

This quiz will help children to compare and correctly order numbers up to 100.
