This quiz looks at apostrophes for contractions. It teaches KS1 children about connecting two words, the latter being ‘will’, ‘would’ and ‘are’. The National Curriculum requires Year 2 children to know how to use an apostrophe to mark when a letter is missing. This activity will aid their learning on contracting the aforementioned words, and will improve their use of the English language and literacy.
Sometimes we can shorten two words by contracting them together. We can contract ‘I will’ into ‘I’ll’; ‘I would’ into ‘I’d’ and ‘you are’ into ‘you’re’. The apostrophe replaces any of the missing letters.
