Year 2 Apostrophes

Teacher Specific Information

This Year 2 Apostrophes activity checks pupils’ understanding of recognising and using contractions. Pupils will match the contractions to their expanded forms, identify the correct apostrophe placement in different contractions, add apostrophes correctly, type the expanded form of various contractions, and drag and drop contractions to complete words.

This activity is linked to the Classroom Secrets Year 2 GPS scheme of work.
Questions in this activity are based on the content in Spring Block 2 Steps 1 and 2 on the Classroom Secrets website, where you can find more resources.
