Homophones: ‘ce’, ‘se’

  • A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another but is spelt differently.
  • A homophone can also be spelt the same as another word but have a different meaning.
  • Nouns are naming words (boy, cat, chair).  Verbs are doing or action words (run, jump, shout).
  • ‘c’ can be hard (sounds like a ‘k’ in cat) or soft (sounds like a ‘s’ in cell).
