Swan Class


This morning, we will be looking at homophones. What are they? Why do we need to know and recognise them? You will need to work through the video below, which will take you through some different examples of homophones and the activities will make you think about the correct spellings for pairs of homophones. You will spend some time matching correct spellings and using homophones in sentences and then move on to some games, poetry and other related activities. Follow the instructions on the video. Enjoy!

There are two activities; if you are feeling confident then start with Activity 2. If you require some additional practice after the PowerPoint then start with Activity 1. Please use the mark schemes to self-assess your work.
