The new coat which belongs to Sarah can also be written as Sarah's new coat. Putting 's after a noun (remember a noun is the name of a person, place or thing) tells you that someone or something owns whatever comes next. Sarah owns the new coat. It belongs to her.

Copy each phrase into the box, putting in the apostrophe before the s, as in the example.
