This week’s spellings are common homophones (or near homophones).
Homophones are words which sound the same (or similar) but have a different spelling and meaning. The tricky part is knowing when to use each.
Words will be tested on Thursday 19 October. We’ll say a sentence containing one of the words and children will need to spell the correct one. Help your child at home by doing the same and checking they know which homophone is in the sentence. For example, ‘I turned the light off’.
- of off
- are our
- your you’re
- were where
- there their they’re
