Year 2 Using apostrophes for omission: Here We Are

Year 2 Using apostrophes for omission: Here We Are

WOW Lesson

Join English expert, Rachel Clarke, as she shares a lesson that helps children to understand the use of apostrophes for omission. In this lesson, you will explore the English objective relating to apostrophes to mark where letters are missing in spelling. The learning will take place in the context of the book, Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth, by Oliver Jeffers. The book is written in the first person, so children will also learn to recognise this narrative voice. Children will apply their learning by writing their own notes to a newborn child or visitor to Earth.
