Plazoom’s Year 6 SPaG Revision Blaster packs are the perfect way to check children’s knowledge and understanding of the KS2 programme of study for English. The areas of grammar, punctuation and spelling covered in this SPaG revision blaster are apostrophes and hyphens.
The packs are based around the content domains of the Key Stage 2 grammar, punctuation and spelling test framework. ‘Let’s Recap!’ provides information to revise or reteach an area of grammar, punctuation or spelling covered in Paper 1 of the GPS test followed by ‘Let’s Practise!’ with SATs style questions for the pupils to complete independently or as a class. Three sheets are provided, Revision Blaster 1, 2 and 3. These increase in difficulty, with questions having a greater cognitive load on Revision Blaster 3.
A PowerPoint version of the pack is included, so it can be worked through in groups, or as a whole class.
This primary resource pack includes:
- Let’s Recap PDF and PPT slides
- Let’s Practise worksheet: apostrophes and hyphens
- Let’s Practise answers
- Let’s Recap PDF sheet
When are apostrophes used?
Apostrophes are used in two ways.
1. To show where letters are missing in contracted words.
didn’t can’t I’ll
2. To show singular or plural possession.
It is Mia’s cat. (singular possession)
That is James’s hat. (singular possession)
These are the children’s lunchboxes. (plural possession)
I have parked in the visitors’ carpark. (plural possession)
When are hyphens used?
A hyphen is used to join two words and to make meaning clear and avoid ambiguity.
You could have a … man eating tiger. (a man eating a tiger)
Or… the man-eating tiger. (A tiger that could eat a man)
