This lesson explores the concept of homophones - words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings such as "their" and "there". As these words are phonetically identical, selecting the correct spelling within the context of a sentence can be challenging. This series of interactive activities will ensure that pupils are familiar with a range of these tricky words.
Throughout the lesson, pupils are exposed to a wide range of homophones. They are encouraged to locate these target words within sentences, match word pairs and consider the spelling when selecting a homophone to complete a sentence. The lesson encourages whole class/group discussion, collaboration and participation and above all the games are fun.
