About The Course

Ask any teacher about the areas of reading that many pupils struggle with the most and they will probably tell you that inference and deduction are right up there!

This course will explore ways into inference for pupils in KS2 classrooms. Teachers will be enabled to explore a selection of strategies for developing effective inference within their reading curriculum. There will also be a very clear focus on how effective modelling is instrumental in the teaching of inference within KS2.

Teachers will need to bring to the session a book (or text extract) that they intend to use with their classes.
