Spellings

This week’s spelling list is formed using our Must Do homophones for Year 3. Children should practise listening to a sentence read to them out loud and writing the correct homophone. For example:

They’re going to a party this weekend.”

Can you think of any fun ways to remember which word is right? Can you write some silly sentences? Can you show your words creatively?

  • your/you’re
  • its/it’s
  • of/off
  • they’re/their/there
  • which/witch

Children should learn these in preparation for a spelling test on Friday 13 December.

We are learning our 4 times tables.
