Punctuation and Grammar
This weeks grammar activities are all about homographs. A homograph is a word that is spelt the same but has different meanings, for example;
The wind blew through the trees.
I had to wind the wool around the bobbin.

This week there are some activities on homophones for you to try. A homophone can be two or more words that have the same sound when you say them but have different meanings and spellings, for example; pair, like a pair of socks and pear, a fruit you can eat. There is a powerpoint to help you first then try the worksheets below especially the ones on

Punctuation and Grammar
I have tried to find some activities that you can print out and do on paper rather than on the computer. One of the fun activities I have found is an Escape Room Challenge. These are often quite difficult to do so if there is anyone else in the house then ask for their help - there are answers too. Maybe you can compete and time how long it takes you to escape.
