Spellings

This week’s spellings focus on a selected group of homophones. They will be tested on Friday 14th March and can be found below with a hint to their meaning:

Spelling tip:  ‘ow’ can make a long sound ‘o’ sound (slow) or a short ‘o’ sound (now).

fowl (bird)

flower (blossom)

dowse (drench)

how’s (how is?)

Spelling tip: ‘ou’ can make a sound like ‘ow’ (e.g. flour-flower).  There are many of these words.

flour (baking)

douse (drench)

house (to accommodate)

aloud (out loud)

Spelling tip:   ‘ou’ can make a sound like short ‘o’.

poring (studying closely)
