'Know Your Apostrophes: Marking Possession 2' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   English

Curriculum subtopic:   Punctuation: Colons, Semicolons & Apostrophes

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

One of the uses of the apostrophe is to show possession, which means who something belongs to.

for example:

the girl's room = the room belonging to the girl

 

If the room belongs to more than one girl, then the apostrophe comes after the 's'.

the girls' room = the room belonging to the girls

 

The word girl is a singular noun but the word girls is a plural noun (plural means 'more than one').

 

Most plural nouns in English end in 's' so the apostrophe comes after the 's'.

 

the boy's ball = the ball belonging to one boy

the boys' ball = the ball belonging to more than one boy
