This week, we’ve been learning about using apostrophes for contraction. This is where two words are contracted together and some letters are omitted – these letters are replaced with an apostrophe. For example, do not becomes don’t. There are many reasons for using contractions but they’re usually used to be less formal. This week, we’d like you to practise writing these as contractions:


do not        did not       should not       would not       could not       will not       cannot       shall not        have not     is not       it is

We’ll have a test on Thursday 12 May 2022. For some creative ideas on how to make learning spellings more fun, check out our super spelling strategies guide on the website.
