This week, Bluebirds have been looking at homophones. These are words that sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings. Before looking at new homophones, the children recalled those they already know and could remember from Year 2. We had a matching game of matching up some new homophones with their definition and some of us extended this to a game of pairs too!
We thought of some ways to remember some of the homophones to remember how to spell them such as:
The word “ear” within hear
A male lion has a mane (ma_e) they are both spelt the same so the other spelling of these are spelt mai_)
Imagine the looo of the k is a knot for the word knot.
The children they applied their new spellings to write sentences with the correctly spelt homophone, used in the correct context.
