Friday 21 January 2022

This week, we’ve been learning about contractions. Contractions are when two words are combined a letter(s) is omitted – and replaced with an apostrophe. We use contractions in our writing and our speech to be less formal. Your child should practise spelling these contractions…

  1. do not/ don’t                               6. he will/ he’ll
  2. will not/ won’t                           7. she will /she’ll
  3. could not /couldn’t                  8. they will /they’ll
  4. should not /shouldn’t            9. has not/ hasn’t
  5.  I am/ I’m                                     10. is not/ isn’t

We’ll test ourselves on Friday 28 January 2022 to see how we’ve got on.
