|KCPE 2008 Composition|
|KCPE 2005 Composition|
- Composition writing in primary schools is a means of self expression and communication.
- The writing of a story is a response rather than an isolated activity. Composition writing is assessed primarily for its content, its imagination, use of vocabulary, spelling, punctuation and sentence structure.
- In this way, pupils learn the mechanics of writing but not at the cost of enthusiasm and enjoyment.
- This section is designed to expose you to various ways of being creative.
- You are not therefore encouraged to copy or master any composition. The sample compositions used are designed to guide you on how to set out your composition effectively.
- The sample compositions therefore seek to arouse your interest and make you think sensibly and organize the flow of your events in order to come up with perfectly written compositions.Read them carefully and thoroughly.
In order for you to improve in composition writing, you are expected to carry out a lot of your own story book, articles and magazine reading.
a) She came out of the bathroom to find her day old baby missing. (Notice that the baby will be the source of conflict.)
b) When the thieves gathered to share the money, they found the box empty. (Notice that the money will be the source of conflict.) Begin your story in the first sentence.
