Year 3 Spellings
Our spelling focus for Grammar this week is...
Homophones.
A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning, and may differ in spelling.
Below are some words that are pronounced the same, but have different spellings and meanings.
There are 11 spellings this week.
Learn the words below and next Monday we will be having a spelling check where I will use the spellings in a sentence so you know which one is which.
Top tip: you may need to research what they mean!
1. there      their       they’re

2. meet      meat
3. see        sea
4. whale     wail
5. our         hour
