Wednesday

Using apostrophes to show possession

This topic is also covered on the BBC bitesize daily lessons, where there are 2 videos and 3 activities. You can either do the activities on the bitesize website or the ones below. (Year 4 - English - 29th April) 

 

Task 1: Watch the BBC Bitesize videos linked above.

When using contractions, we need to remember some key points:

  • shows that something belongs to someone or something
  • singular noun refers to one person or thing
  • plural nouns ending in 's' refers to more than one person or thing

 

For example: The boys' books.

 

Task 2: Go around your house and make a list of items and who they belong to. Write a short passge using apostrophes to show possession. For example: This is my big brother Owen's favourite book called 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' he likes to read this before he goes to bed. This is my Mummy's apron, she wears this when she is cooking our dinner. 

 

REMEMBER you can send your learning into the school email - year4@wilnecote-junior.staffs.sch.uk.
