This KS2 English quiz looks at apostrophes to mark possession. Apostrophes have two important jobs to play in English. They are used for contractions, where they show that some letters have been left out, and they are also used to show possession - that is, when something belongs to someone or something else.
As an example, we could say, ‘The Frisbee belongs to Michael.’ Alternatively, we can say, ‘This is Michael’s Frisbee.’ The apostrophe is added to Michael (along with an ‘s’) to show that the Frisbee belongs to him.
See how well you can use apostrophes to mark possession by taking this second apostrophe quiz.
