WALT use apostrophes to mark singular possession in nouns.

 

This is our main learning focus this week before we start to plan and write our own version of The High Street.

 

 

What is a possessive apostrophe?

 

An apostrophe can be used to show that one thing belongs to or is connected to something. This is called a possessive apostrophe.

 

When do we use possessive apostrophes?

 

 For singular nouns, add apostrophe + s, for example:

 

The dog’s leash. The writer’s desk. The planet’s atmosphere

 

Follow the links below to watch a BBC Supermovers song on apostrophes and to access a BBC Bitesize lesson on using apostrophes for possession or belonging as they refer to it in the lesson.

The instruction in the lesson tells you to stop watching the video at 2 minutes and 28 seconds but stop it at 2 minutes 45 seconds.

There are activities to complete within the BBC Bitesize lesson.
