Apostrophes to Mark Possession
This is Michael's Frisbee.

Apostrophes to Mark Possession

Jump into another exciting KS2 English quiz about apostrophes! Apostrophes are like little helpers with two big jobs. First, they make words shorter in contractions, like turning 'Michael has' into 'Michael's.' Second, they show possession – when something belongs to someone.

Imagine a Frisbee belonging to Michael. Instead of saying, 'The Frisbee belongs to Michael,' we can say, 'This is Michael’s Frisbee.' The apostrophe and 's' tell us it's his! Test your possession power in this quiz – become an apostrophe pro!
