Develop pupils’ inference skills using inspiring and thought provoking images. This pack uses an image to prompt discussions about a particular setting.

Using inference when reading, watching films or looking at images is an important skill when developing pupils’ comprehension. The use of images removes the need to decode, meaning that pupils with varying degrees of reading fluency can all discuss and answer questions about the same image to develop inference skills.

This resource asks questions about a castle in the image, inspiring thinking about where the castle is, who might live there and how old it might be and encouraging pupils to offer explanations for their answers.

This resource pack includes:

  • PDF image – The Castle
  • Question cards
  • Answer cards
  • Speech and thought bubble templates
  • PPT Ttaching slides with the image and questions
  • Blank question cards
