Friday 10 December 2021

Next week, we’ll continue  to focus on common homophones. Homophones are words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings – this is one of the reasons why English spelling is super tricky!

To help consolidate this learning, we’d like you to practise spelling these words at home. Because they’re homophones, it’s most useful to practise these in sentences. You could do this in the car, on a walk or around the table.

hear, here,         which, witch,     to, two, too, 

I can hear a tune. Come and sit here.

Which shoes shall I wear? I saw a witch with a broomstick.

I am going to the shop to buy two lollies. Do you want to come too?

We’ll test ourselves on Friday 17 December to see how we’ve got on.
