Jessica has a jersey cow

who juggles jugs of coke.

She's a jolly jersey cow,

just juggling for a joke.

Jack's Toys

Jack has a junk box jammed full of toys

He just shares them with gentle boys

There's a jack-in-the-box

And jumbo blocks

And a jet that makes a gigantic noise.

Jonathan's Travels

Jonathan went to Germany

from June until July.

though he generally doesn't fly.

he jumps up nearly to the sky!

Jumping John

John jumps like a jack-in-the-box,

with his jazzy black jeans

and his new gym socks.

In his jumper and jacket

he jives and he rocks

to the joyful jazz on his junior juke box.

J_

 

Justin loves juniper juice

and Judy loves jam;

John loves jelly beans

but George hates ham!

J_ /G_

 

Gemma generally likes to eat

 Jaffas and jelly and all kinds of meat;

with a big jug of juice

and a whole jar of jam,

she eats ginger jelly beans out of a can.

J_

 

Jamahl jumps with Jeffrey

and Jeffrey jumps with John;

they all fell in the mud

with their jackets on.

Jane

  

             Jane

Jason

 

Jason

mixed a pudding in the basin.

He put in strawberries, sultanas and cherries...

and then he put a shoelace in!

just squashed my toe;

it makes me go

awfully slow -

although I know

my toe will grow".

 Josh

 

Josh went

to have a wash

but the water sploshed

on the floor.

"O,Gosh", said Josh,

"Oh Tiddley-Tosh!

I'd better not splosh

any more!"

Julianne

 

Julianne

saw a man

Standing in a frying pan.

Julianne

Ran to her Nan,

And said, “Nan,

That's a funny man!”
