There are three worksheets in total, covering the following five sections – ‘understand’, ‘challenge’, ‘test’, ‘explain’ and ‘apply’.

  • Understand
    Students complete a series of five sentences by choosing between two homophones, and then identify misspellings in a further four sentences
  • Challenge
    Prompted by six different homophones, students devise a sentence for each one in which the term is used correctly
  • Test
    Students suggest suitable homophones for seven words, and complete three partial sentences with an appropriate homophone
  • Explain
    Students explain the different meanings of a homophone pair of their own choosing, before proceeding to explain the different meanings of ‘complimented’ and ‘complemented’.
  • Apply
    ‘Can you write a poem which includes 3 pairs of homophones and shows what they mean?’
