Homophones

Do you know what homophones are?

This week, we have been having fun with homophones.

A homophone is a word that is pronounced in the same way as another word but has a different meaning.

The words we looked at were spelled in a different way:

There/Their
They live over there.
This is their house.

They can also be spelled in the same way too:

Rose/Rose
He bought her a rose for her birthday
The audience rose when she walked in the room

Match the 13 words in the box with the words in the list that sound exactly the same:

war bury herd eye
wear sore by be
break hole piece sea
for      
  1. wore

  2. heard

  3. where

  4. buy

  5. brake

  6. peace

  8. see

  9. whole

  10. bee
