English

This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons/1

 

Today's focus is understanding that some words sound the same but have different meanings.

There are 3 activities, you can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.

 

Start by watching the video explaining what homophones are.

Activity 1: Identifying homophones

Play the Homophones mini game on Small Town Superheroes. Use the yellow arrows to navigate to the 'Steve' section to find the 'Homophones' game.

 

Activity 2: Let's find homophones

Homophones are everywhere!

Make a list of all the homophones you can think of.

If you're struggling to think of some, you could always look through some of your favourite books at home and see how many you can spot.

Here are some to start your list off:

  • here - hear
  • son - sun
  • bass - base

 

Activity 3: Let's write some sentences

Watch the short video that introduces you to the story Nelly the Monster Sitter by Kes Gray.

 

What did you think about Nelly the Monster Sitter ?

Using the following sentence starters, write your opinion of the story. Try and include lots off detail about what happened and what you thought of it.

  • My favourite part was _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  • I thought the book was funny because _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  • I didn't like when _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  • The story would have been better if _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Once you're finished, circle all the times you've used homophones.
