For today's Literacy lesson, we are going to revise homophones.
Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. They also have different spellings
e.g. heel, heal and he'll are homophones because they sound the same but have different meanings and spellings
heel = the back part of your foot
heal = to get better after an illness or injury
he'll = a contraction meaning he will
