Monday Grammar

This week we will be revising homophones. Homophones are words that sound the same but have a different meaning. For example, night and knight. Night is the time of day when it is dark outside whereas a knight is a type of soldier from medieval times who wore shining armour. Use the PowerPoint and song provided to explore some more common homophones. You are probably already familiar with most of them!
