Apostrophes: common difficulties.
This is the fifth in the apostrophe series. It deals with common problems: how to deal with plurals that don't end in 's', when to use an apostrophe after an abbreviation, its/it's, who's/whose, your/you're, their/they're. Good for upper KS2 and KS3.

Adults may also find it clarifies a few things, so it could also be used for whole school training.

There are two versions of the same file: one is the standard PPt version, and the other is a PDF file which could be used for classroom display.
