Lisa loves to listen

To a lovely lullaby;

Late at night she lowers her light

And lets it lull her sleepy eyes.




Lovely Layla looks like a lily,

but she says I shouldn't say that,

because it sounds silly.




Lauren had a little lamb

The lamb was light and slow

And everywhere that Lauren led

That lamb was slow to go.

Laura saw a girl called Nora

dressed up in a tub of Flora.

"I can't spread her on my bread"

said Laura,

"so I'll just ignore her".




Leanne ran to see her Nan:

"Leanne" said her nan,

"You've got a good tan!"





Lee's Peas

Lee grew some peas

On a green pea tree;

He gave three to me

And we ate them up for tea.




Leigh saw a bee;

It landed on his knee.

"Oh, gee!" said Leigh,

"I hope that bee

Doesn't eat me for tea."

Lily isn't silly,

though she thought her Auntie Milly

was really

Uncle Billy.





Lucilla met a gorilla

Shopping at the shops;

The gorilla showed Lucilla

that he'd bought some lamb chops.

"Oh, lovely!" said Lucilla

   I'll cook those chops for tea;

I'll grill them on the griller

                                                             For Grandma, you and me.




Lynita sat beside the heater

mixing a cake with her granny's beater.

She put in sugar to make it sweeter

and cooked it up upon the heater.




Linda loves kinder

She likes to play and sing;

She also loves to paint and paste

And almost everything!

Macaulay's Motorbike

Macaulay had a motorbike

But it broke one day

So Macaulay mended it,

And then he rode away.

It’s all Greek to me!

For Boys:  

Mark, Marshall/Mahcial, Mitchell


Mark took a walk

in the park, in the dark.

He thought it would be

A bit of a lark;

But he fell down

And hurt his head,

And had to go

Straight home to bed.





Mahcial had a marching band

He was a marvellous master

When they marched

Through Marble Arch

He made them march much faster.




Mitchell wonders which witch’ll

Put a spell on Mitchell
