Focus : homophones

This week, we have been consolidating our learning on homophones (same sound different spelling). Your task this week is to write a list of ten sentences which contain some of the following homophones.

which, witch, here, hear, their, there, they’re, were, where, wear

However, you must have a mixture of correct and incorrect uses of them. We will then figure out which are correct and which are incorrect as a class.
