Sarah squeezed her sausage

At the Sunday sausage sizzle

She slopped the sauce all over her skirt,

And the sausage started to grizzle!

Simon had a  sausage

At the Sunday sausage sizzle

The sausage was hot

But the weather was not -

All it did all day was drizzle!

Sophie seldom skis, 

But she sat on someone's soap;

and now she's sitting sideways

sliding down a slippery slope!

Sam / Sam

  

Sam likes lamb

And sausages and ham

But always, when he eats meat,

He spreads it all with jam!

Scott

  

When Scott was a tot

He slept in a cot

With a blanket with lots of spots and dots.

He lived on a yacht

But the yacht did not

Have a lot of pots,

    So what Scott got to eat was not very hot!

Steven/Stephen

  

When Steven was leavin’ his house one day,

A great big monster stood in his way.

Steven said: ”Even

If you stand there all day,

I'll still take no notice,  

So you might as well GO AWAY!”
