Friday 22nd May


Today we are learning to use apostrophes to form contracted words.  For example: would not becomes wouldn't.  Remember that the apostrophe shows where the missing letter(s) would have been. 

First have a go at the powerpoint quiz and then see if you can complete the table below (find the answers in the resources below):
