English KS2: Homophone sentence show

A pair of homophones are demonstrated being used in the same sentence, shown pictorially to represent their meaning.

Some of the example sentences include; 'I hear it’s here', 'Keeping the peace is a piece of cake', 'Don’t worry I’ve seen him make a scene like this before' and 'It’s big enough to make a grown man groan'.

There is a final recap of all the homophones used with an explanation of who’s and whose; ‘who’s’ is a contraction of ‘who is’, whereas ‘whose’ is a pronoun like mine or their.

This short film is from the BBC series, Wonderful Words, a series of animated clips to support vocabulary knowledge.
