Inferring a character's feelings - KS2/3  inference in writing

Inferring a character's feelings - KS2/3 inference in writing

This lesson plan and presentation will help children understand how to infer a character's feelings rather than just writing the emotion. It involves a fun starter for the teacher - a little bit of acting, which the children love! If you are not a fan of acting you could get away with the text at the beginning of the presentation and the discussion. Children will end up writing their own paragraph inferring what a character is feeling. Differentiated planning.
