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.
