This 3-page worksheet for children in year 2 is an excellent way of revising and practising homophones. Students can be set the following four activities as part of a classroom lesson, for assessment purposes or as a homework task:

  • Students complete four sentences by circling the correct word from a series of homophone pairs, and then underline incorrect spellings in a further four sentences
  • Starting with a pirate-themed image prompt, students proceed to write three sentences that each use one of three pre-selected homophonic words
  • Students complete six sentences by suggesting a single missing homophonic word for each
  • Working from an image prompt, students write a brief story passage while attempting to include five pre-chosen homophones
