It is an apostrophe. We use it in our writing...

 

1.For contraction e.g. He didn’t like his dinner very much.
 
 
2.To show possession e.g. Jamie’s bag was still in the car. 

Look at the sentences below. Where is the possessive apostrophe? Who possesses what?

 

1) The lighthouse keeper’s spectacles balanced on the bridge of his nose as he stared through them, sick with worry.


2) Across the town the villager’s cheers halted abruptly.


3) Villagers huddled together, holding lanterns aloft in the hope of altering the ship’s course.

 

Can write out the sentence below and include the possessive apostrophe correctly?

 

The lighthouse keepers study was an organised chaos- although it appeared untidy, everything had its place.
