Literacy: Inference and deduction

Following on from the work we did based on The Tunnel by Anthony Browne, the children looked even closer at the text and illustrations. His picture books are full to the brim with hidden clues and meaning that add to the overall story.

There are 4 clues inside each envelope belonging to a different person, here the children are working in groups to deduce who it's referring to.

What skills did you use and how did you come to your final conclusion?
