Year 8, Week 2: Possessive apostrophes
We add an apostrophe and s to show that something belongs to someone e.g. Sarah’s pencil case or Margaret’s favourite chocolates.
If a word already ends in an s you should still add an apostrophe but you do not need to add an s e.g. Jesus’ disciples, Thomas’ book
If a word is plural and ends in an s, you would also use an apostrophe without an s e.g. The cats’ food, the pupils’ bags
If a word is plural but doesn’t end in an s e.g. women or men, then you add apostrophe s as usual e.g. The women’s tennis final, the men’s toilets.
