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.

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