Year Five: Dialogue & It's and Its
We have been learning about 'its' and 'it's', and beginning the Noir unit.
It's is a contraction for it is or it has.
Its is a possessive pronoun meaning 'of it' or 'belonging to it'.
If you can replace it[']s in your sentence with it is or it has, then your word is it's; otherwise, your word is its.
Revise by listening to this Bald Worm podcast:
Please write a dialogue between a hard-boiled detective and a 'dame' in a speakeasy. They are discussing a crime the dame would like the detective to commit. Try to include both 'its' and 'its' as part of your dialogue!
Write 1 side of A4.
