This week, we’ve been learning about using apostrophes. An apostrophe can be used to show that one thing belongs to or is connected to something. This is called a possessive apostrophe.

The cat’s fluffy tail.

An apostrophe because of omission is where an apostrophe is used to indicate the missing letters in a contraction (the shortened form of a word or group of words). For example, should’ve, could’ve.

Create your own sentences using both forms of apostrophes.

The test will take place on Friday 10th February.
