Swan Class - Apostrophes for Omission


Today, we will be focusing on turning two words into contractions and using apostrophes to show omission (where we have missed out a letter or letters). You will complete tasks around using an apostrophe in this way and then move on to applying this to full sentences. Follow the video through and complete the tasks. By the end of the lesson, you should feel confident about using apostrophes in this way.
