This quiz looks at apostrophes for singular possessive to nouns and is aimed at Year 2 students studying KS1. It helps them learn when an apostrophe is needed to show singular possession to a noun. The National Curriculum suggests all Year 2 children learn how to use apostrophes appropriately and this game will aid that requirement as well as enhancing their use of literacy and the English language.
The cat’s tail. This cat owns her own tail and that is why there is an apostrophe and an ‘s’. If that wasn’t there then that would mean there was more than one cat. If you know the cat is called Mitsy, then you’d write ‘Mitsy’s tail’. If you don’t know the name you use the noun to describe it - like cat. You have to make sure that the cat still owns its tail by showing possession through the apostrophe.
