Strengthen inference skills at KS2

Support your KS2 pupils to develop reading fluency with classic texts, using a tried and tested approach to whole-school reading with Plazoom’s powerful Unlocking Inference resource packs.

Featuring key comprehension objectives to develop pupils’ understanding of fiction and develop positive attitudes to reading, this powerful collection will improve children’s reading stamina as they learn to make sophisticated inferences through repeated layered readings of the extracts, discussing vocabulary used and the effect this has on the reader.
