Your and You're

This KS2 English quiz will test you on the words your and you're. Your is a possessive pronoun whilst you're is a contraction of 'you are'. In writing, people often confuse 'you're' and 'your' because they are homophones - the two words sound the same. But 'you're' is a contraction of the words 'you are', whereas 'your' is a possessive pronoun meaning something belongs to you.

Just like the words in our KS2 English quiz titled Their, They're and There, it's important to know which one to use correctly. Once you fully know the meaning of each, then you'll have no trouble using the right one every time!

See if you know the difference by trying this English quiz.
