There was a fat cat.
That had a flat hat.
He had a long chat,
With a great big green rat.

Elizabeth, aged 7

Cat, cat kitty cat where have you been?
You are my princess so I could not be mean.
Have you been chasing mice?
Have you been chasing rats?
Or have you been having a little scratch?

Rosie, aged 6
Once there was a rat and a cat
who lived together in a flat.
They went shopping and
bought a pet bat.
The rat and the cat made
friends with the bat.
They liked it so much
they bought it a hat!

Year one at St Peters School,
