Spellings - Weekly spellings will be sent home every Friday with your child, for a test in class the following Friday. Spellings will be updated weekly on the website, if you require a paper copy please do not hesitate to ask.



Homophones: long ‘o’


  • Vowels are the letters ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘i’, ‘o’, ‘u’, all other letters are consonants.
  • Vowels can make a short sound (‘o’ as in ‘hop’) or a long sound (‘o’ as in ‘hope’).
  • A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another but is spelt differently.
  • A homophone can also be spelt the same as another word but have a different meaning.
  • Many homophones use the different spellings for long vowel sounds.

Copy each word, then try to write it without copying.  Use the final column to correct any mistakes or to test each group of words.


Spelling tip:

‘oa’, ‘ow’ and magic ‘e’ with ‘o’ can all make a long ‘o’ sound.
