Using a ruler or tape measure (or something else to measure a standard unit e.g. lego) and measure different objects around the house. Remember to make a prediction first to develop your awareness of different lengths.

English

Homophones are (not our) a pair (not pear) of words that sound the same but are spelled differently. They also have different meanings. An example is right and write. We need to use the correct homophone in our writing. There are many homophones and near homophones in English and we learn this spelling rule in every year at primary school to become experts before secondary school.

Use the ‘Spellzone’ website and play some homophone games: click here
