Homophones

A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word, but has a different meaning and is spelt differently.

For example: there/their/they’re

All of these words sound the same but are spelt differently and have a different meaning. It is important we use the correct homophones when we are writing.

What homophones can you think of?

Today we will pick a homophone each and write the words into sentences.

For example:

  • The car is parked over there.
  • The family went and washed their car.
  • They’re going to the zoo.

You will then have a challenge of trying to put all of the homophones into one sentence.

Example: They’re hopping into their car over there.
