Recommended activities below:

Tuesday:Find examples of use of apostrophes on signs, in newspapers, magazines or in books. Can you spot why the apostrophe is at the end or before the s?
Wednesday: Write 2 sentences for each word which use the apostrophe in the different ways correctly.
Thursday: Own choice. Can you choose your favourite way we have previously learnt spellings to some off you use of apostrophes?
Friday: Take the test online or on paper.
