16th November

This week, in spellings, we are revising apostrophes. There are three reasons why we use apostrophes:

1. contractions (two words join and there is a missing letter or letters)

2. singular possession (an item or items belongs to one person)

3. plural possession (an item or items belongs to more than one person)

* Remember - if it is a plural, it does not need an apostrophe! eg There were five girls in the group. The boys played football.

shouldn't - I shouldn't be unkind to others.

haven't - They haven't started their art work yet.

you're - You're so kind because you noticed I was upset and asked me to play.

girl's - The girl's flower was pink and orange.

boy's - The boy's football was black and white.

Smith's - That was Miss Smith's chocolate cake.

girls' - The girls' trainers were wet from kayaking.

boys' - The boys' footballs had gone missing.

teachers' - The teachers' milk tasted gross!
