Key points to remember:

It’s and its

TOP TIP: Only use the apostrophe to contract two words (it is or it has)!

e.g. I don’t know if it’s ok to go to your house at the weekend. We use it’s because it is short for it is.

We have to help the robin because it’s hurt its leg. We use it’s because it is short for it has. We use its because the leg belongs to the robin.

NOTE: to show possession, we normally use an apostrophe but in the case of something belonging to it, we do not use an apostrophe to show possession. We just use its.
