Spelling Focus: sc and ey words with ei or eigh spelling and homophones.

As lots of your words over the next few weeks are homophones - words which sound the same but are spelt differently - it is important to know the difference.  Make sure that you know how to use them in a sentence.  You could create a poster to help you remember them and add to the poster over the next few weeks.       LCWCh Sheet
