I am a Primary School teacher, currently working in Year 3 and about to complete my NQT year (which has flown by and been absolutely brilliant!) following completion of my PGCE at the University of Cambridge. As this is my first year of teaching, the majority of my resources are aimed at Year 3 students though I have a number of children with SEN so activities are differentiated many ways. Usually they follow a 'mild, medium, spicy' format with further differentiation for additional needs.

Homophone helpsheets with fun tricks for remembering!

Homophone helpsheets with fun tricks for remembering!

Learning to spell homophones is not just about knowing when to use which word, it is about being able to use the letters in the word to help you choose which word it should be. I have made simple, but clear and consistent, posters/help sheets which provide fun ways to help you remember homophones (written in black). For each one I have also given a sentence using that homophone correctly (written in red). 26 Homophones included: all the ones mentioned on Year 3/4 curriculum. Plus a few additional ones e.g. four and for. 6 near homophones included: any from the 3/4 curriculum and others that I found needed teaching due to regional accents e.g. are and our, won and one! I hope you find these useful.
