This week, we’re thinking about homophones – words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings.

We need children in Year 4 to not only know how to spell these words but to also have the skill of knowing which word is the right one to use at the right time!

hear/here

break/brake

heel/heal/he’ll

berry/bury

whether/weather

buy/bye/by

there/their/they’re

to/too/two

where/wear/were

who’s/whose
