This week, Year 3 and 4 have been working hard at understanding apostrophes for singular and plural possession. This week’s spelling activity is to look at the text and correct the mistakes. There are a number of apostrophes that have been used incorrectly. To help, read the text and underline any person or thing that owns something first. Then, decide whether it is singular or plural possession and where the apostrophe should go.
- apostrophes for singular possession (when one thing owns something, such as Mrs Lake‘s jumper or Ben’s coat)
- apostrophes for plural possession (when more than one thing owns something, such as children‘s classroom or dogs‘ tails)
