Worksheet Overview

Inference is all about using clues in the text to help us to work out what something is, what might be happening or how a character might be feeling. 


Have you ever played a game where you are given clues to work out what something is? If so, then you will be using your inference skills to work out the answer!


Let's have a go!


'I am thinking of an animal. It is black and white and it likes to eat bamboo. What am I?'

Any ideas? It must be a panda!


a giant panda



Let's have another go.


'I am a fairy tale character. I have golden hair and I like porridge. Who am I?'

Did you get it? I must be Goldilocks




The next few questions will give you a chance to have a go at answering some questions like this using your inference skills.
