2 ask yourself
2. Ask yourself… you…

  • What is happening in each of the pictures?

  • Who is doing what to whom?

  • What can you conclude in short sentences for each picture?

  • Do they show a flow of events?

Here are some clues
Here are some clues… you…

  • Picture compositions always show a flow of events

  • The last picture is for you to conclude

    • But how do you know what to conclude?

      (c) Picture compositions usually carry a message / idea

    • These message/ideas are MORAL VALUES the teacher wants you to learn

    • For eg. Cheating in exams is a DISHONEST act

    • In this case, they want you to know the importance of integrity/honesty

    • So, your conclusion should mention these moral values at the end

      (d) There are helping words at the bottom to guide you through the flow of the story

3 write an outline for your composition
3. Write an outline for your composition you…




  • Remember, a story always have 3 parts:

A introduction

  • It gives the START of a story

  • Introduces the characters

  • Answers questions on:

  • Whoare the characters involved?

    • We can always name the characters

    • It makes the story more interesting

  • Whatis the background of the story?

    • In order to tell the story, we must at least give a short introduction to which why things happen in what we are going to talk about in the EVENT (middle part)

B event middle
(B) EVENT (Middle) you…

  • This is the most important part of a composition

  • It tells everything that the pictures are showing


  • It answers:

  • What is happening?

  • Whois doing what to whom?

  • Whyis it happening?

  • When is it happening?


  • MAKE SURE THERE IS NO LOOP HOLES – Nothing happens out of nowhere!

C conclusion end
(C) CONCLUSION (End) you…

  • The conclusion gives a SUMMARY of the story

  • It ends with the MORAL VALUES the pictures are trying to tell you

  • So in concluding, you MUST always mention the MORAL VALUE

  • Eg. Mike learnt the

    importance of practicing

    honesty in order to become

    trustworthy to others

4 using your outline
4. Using your outline… you…

  • You can start writing your composition

  • Look out for your spelling and tenses

  • If the story happened in the PAST

  • Use only the PAST TENSE

  • DO NOT mix the tenses in your compo

  • This will cause you to lose more marks

Some reminders

  • Always write your story in a way that

    you are telling the ENTIRE story to

    person who has NO IDEA what is

    it about

  • You are the ONLY ONE who knows

    the story BEST

  • So when writing, do not miss out any detail/information

  • A good composition is CLEAR, has good spelling, uses words from the helping words, has good tenses and punctuation and an introduction, event and conclusion

  • Avoid repeating! Eg. The teacher…… The teacher…….

The end
THE END you…
