Make a list of all the homophones you can think of.

Here are some to start your list off:

  • here – hear
  • son – sun
  • bass – base

Science Yesterday we looked at living things and how they are classified.  Today I would like you to look again at the way we remember how to tell something is living or not-MRS NERG.  

Then choose one of the letters, for example, M stands for movement, and design a poster to explain what this means.  Imagine that it will be shown to a younger child – it must be clear and easy to understand.  

You can use as many pictures as you like. So for movement you could draw a plant turning towards the sun or an animal running, a child skipping, a fish swimming etc.
