Before your child starts

This lesson explores inference and how we can use a range of information in an image and a text to answer inferential questions.

What your child needs to do

Your child will watch the Part 3 video to explore inference and use their background information and image clues to make an inference and answer inferential questions.

Throughout the lesson, your child will be asked to pause the video to complete an activity on the activity sheets.

What your child can do next

Your child will be completing a range of activities, including:

  • exploring what information we might use to make an inference
  • making an inference from an image and a text
  • answering inferential questions from an image and text.

Options for your child

Activity too hard?

Have your child complete the tasks orally or draw a picture to show their inferential understanding.

Activity too easy?

Have your child complete the Stage 3 resources based on inference.

Extension/additional activity

Find a picture book that is unfamiliar to your child. Before reading the text, look through the images and make inferences based on the pictures. As you read the text with your child, stop to discuss what inferences you are making based on the text clues and your background knowledge.
