Inferring Lesson Using Media – Thanks Mrs Bradbury


3/4J we have practising our understanding of Observing, Wondering and Inferring using Non Fiction, Images and Texts. Today we are going to use Media as a tool to help us make inferences. 

Here is some background on the video you will watch:

The Video is about a boy named Alexander who can’t stop growing at school and has to move away. The teacher decides to bring her classroom to Alexander. Alexander believes he’s special, but only because he’s unusually tall. The class quickly shows Alexander just how special he really is.

We use sticky notes to record out responses and then discuss as a group. Your responses will be your exit card to independent reading.
