Using inference to be a reading detective

When we read stories, watch films or TV shows, look at pictures or play video games, we use lots of different skills to work out what is happening. One of these skills is called inference. Inferring is a bit like being a detective. You have to find the clues to work out the hidden information. Imagine the main character in a story skips into a room, smiling brightly and waving to their friends. You could infer that the character is happy. The text hasn’t told you the character is happy, but you can work it out from the clues given. Task 1 Tap the link to watch a short video explaining more about inference.
