Grammar: Contractions

Miniclips

Gary and Liz have heard that their local council wants to build a shopping centre on their favourite park. They’re trying to come up with some snappy slogans to use at the rally to save the park. Maybe using some contractions will help save the park! This Miniclip looks at what contractions are, the rules of creating them, and the role that apostrophe’s play to signal missing letters. Students will also discover that contractions are part of informal language and create a casual tone – which wouldn’t be suitable in their letter to the mayor!
