We are looking at homophones this week, specifically those ones that people often get confused with. 



Start by finding definitions for the words below and record these. Do the definitions help you remember how to spell them?


Today I would like you to see if you can come up with a rhyme to help you remember how to spell each of the words. Can you create a mnemonic (a pattern of words linking to the letters like Billy Eats Cakes And Uses Six Eggs for because). 



Use the 'look cover write check' technique to practise your spellings and check whether your rhymes or mnemonics work.



Use a different strategy you are familiar with to practise your spellings today - remember it's a good opportunity to practise your handwriting too!



Ask someone at home to test you on your spellings and make a note of ones you get wrong to work on next week.
