Most pupils are aware of using a flashback introduction to start the story.

For this example, we will be writing the flashback conclusion which can be paired with the flashback introduction using the given topic.

Step 1 – Start with the action that jolted the main character back to reality

The flashback conclusion should be connected to the flashback introduction.

Since the flashback introduction focuses on the principal’s speech during assembly, the flashback conclusion should be about what happened when the assembly was over.

Step 2 – Add the main character’s reaction

Next, pupils have to add the main character’s reaction to being jolted back to reality.

In this case, the main character could be leaving to return to class when the assembly was over.

Step 3 – End with the lesson learnt

One of the main rule of writing a conclusion is to insert the title.

In this case, we are using a variation “kindness” based on the title “A kind act” to write the concluding lesson.

A story hook conclusion fully concludes the story.

For this example, we will be writing a story hook conclusion which complements this story hook beginning.

Step 1 – Answer the question

Pupils should answer the question in the story hook.

Since the question posed at the beginning of the story is about someone else eating the birthday cake, the answer in the conclusion should reveal the identity.
