Composition for Primary 1-3 (Lost Wallet)

Updated: Aug 27, 2023

This will be useful to help your child pick up the basics of story flow - to understand how the introduction transits into the problem. I've always frowned upon lazy resolution, even for lower primary writing, and insists on having the protagonist solve the problem. The template that many students love to rely on always passes the baton to some authority figure, and in this story, it would have been the police (who would have taken over the story). Vocabulary can take a backseat for now but when students are more comfortable with plotting and structure, you can start introducing phrases.


In a busy city, there lived a curious young boy named Timmy. Timmy was always eager to explore the world around him and learn new things.

One day, as Timmy was walking home from school, he came across a lost wallet lying on the sidewalk. The wallet was old and worn, and it looked like it had been there for quite some time.

Timmy picked up the wallet and examined it. Inside, he found a driver's license with a picture of an older man and a small amount of money. Timmy felt a pang of sympathy for the man who had lost his wallet, and he decided to do something about it.

Timmy took the wallet home with him and spent the rest of the day trying to track down the owner. He called the number on the driver's license and left a message, but no one answered. He searched online for the man's name, but he couldn't find any information.

Timmy was determined to find the owner of the lost wallet, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. The next day, he set out on a mission to find the man. He searched all over the city, asking people if they recognized the man in the picture on the driver's license.

Finally, after several hours of searching, Timmy came across an old man who looked just like the one in the picture. The man was overjoyed to be reunited with his lost wallet, and he thanked Timmy profusely for his help.

Timmy was happy to have been able to help the man, and he learned an important lesson about the value of helping others. From that day on, he made it his mission to always be on the lookout for people in need and to do whatever he could to help them.
