The way you conclude your story must give the reader a sense of closure. Endings in compositions suffer the most. Usually because of time factor or no planning, endings can be abrupt and sudden, causing the reader (mainly your examiner) to feel unsatisfied.

Using some proverbs may be a cliché for upper primary writers but can do well for lower primary ones. Re-focusing on the theme given at the end can also be a good way to close your story.


  • Don’t cry over spilt milk
  • Good things come to those who wait
  • Honesty is the best policy
  • Once bitten twice shy
  • Blood is thicker than water
  • Actions speak louder than words
  • All good things must come to an end

Mentioning Themes at the end

  • The accident taught me an invaluable lesson. It will be a mistake I will never make again.
  • As we watched the sun set, I felt a warm glow around me. It was the best birthday I had ever had.
  • As I received my trophy on stage, I felt a sense of pride in my achievement. I had stepped up to the plate and overcome the challenge.
