Stressed and unstressed vowels

Year 3 have had a very busy week learning about stressed and unstressed vowels. Children investigated words with the ‘er’ diagraph by using dictionaries and IPads. How many words can you think of with a stressed and unstressed vowel? Does the word ‘brother’ have a stressed or unstressed vowel?

To extend their knowledge further pupils looked at the different types of homophones. Children learnt the importance of using the correct homophone within their sentences.  What is the difference between a homograph and a homonym?

Can you solve the following homophone brainteaser?

It moves through the air and is also a viral infection. 

 

Have a great weekend.
