What is an apostrophe?
Apostrophes have two different uses:
Apostrophes for contraction: Showing the place of missing letters (eg I’m for I am)
Apostrophes for possession: Marking possessives (eg Hannah’s mother)
Possessive apostrophe rules
When showing singular possession, ‘s is added to the end of the word.
The apostrophe is placed after the plural form the words; -s is not added if the plural already ends in -s (ie girls’), but is added if the plural does not end in -s (ie is an irregular plural – eg children’s)
