Here are the steps to get this effect:

we set Point 1 and Point 2 as one group, and Point 3 and Point 4 as another.

1. Select an object, and head to the Animation tab. Here we have grouped Point 1 and Point 2, so we can select them as a whole. (Click here to know how to group objects in WPS Office Presentation.)

2. Here is a box in the ribbon, and some commonly used animations are displayed. We can click the drop-down button to show all the animations.

We can click Custom Animation to set more details.  

4. Click the arrows in the bottom to reorder these animations.

In this example, Point 1 and Point 2 exit before Point 3 and Point 4 enter, so we need to move the exit animation to the top. (The numbers on the top left of the object refer to their orders of animations.)
