2S – Spellings

This week we have been practising homophones (words with the same sound but a different spelling). Many of them the children are already familiar with, so we would like them to practise choosing the correct spelling for different sentences.


To do this we would like the children to write short sentences using their words to reinforce them in the correct context, for example:


The cupboard was bare.     not     The cupboard was bear.

The dragon is over there.     not     The dragon is over their.

The words we have been practising include:

be      bee

I       eye

write       right

ate       eight

male       mail

know      no

some      sum

knew      new

blew       blue

four       for

bye       by       buy

there       they’re       their
