May I know for pri 1 composition in TAS, is it base on 4 picture compo or base on PSLE format - 3 picture choose at least one?
We are using the latest PSLE format that consist of a theme and 3 pictures. Some schools may choose to use the 4 picture compositions for lower primary as it is easier to follow and come up with a story. Whichever the school uses, the skillset required (writing language and content) is still similar. While we use the PSLE format for P1, we ensure that the theme and pictures are scaled according to the students' ability level.
