This quiz, Apostrophes for Singular Possessive to Proper Nouns, is aimed at Year 2 students. It helps them identify when an apostrophe is needed to show singular possession to a proper noun. This is a statutory requirement set out in the National Curriculum for KS1 children and will improve their command of the English language and literacy.
