Just would really appreciate any poetry you might use relating to trains, train journeys.

Many thanks

How about 'Down by the station, early in the morning...'

 

Down at the station, early in the morning

See the little Puffer trains all in a row

Here comes the driver to start up the engine

PUFF PUFF, PEEP PEEP off we go!

PUFF PUFF, PEEP PEEP off we go!

PUFF PUFF, PEEP PEEP off we go!

 

Down at the station, early in the morning

See the little puffer trains all in a row

Here comes the driver to start up the engine

CHUFF CHUFF TOOT TOOT, off we go!

CHUFF CHUFF TOOT TOOT, off we go!

CHUFF CHUFF TOOT TOOT, off we go!

 

Down at the station, early in the morning

See the little Puffer trains all in a row

Here comes the driver to start up the engine

CLICKETY CLACK, CLICKETY CLACK off we go!

CLICKETY CLACK, CLICKETY CLACK off we go!

CLICKETY CLACK, CLICKETY CLACK off we go!

 

Another one:

 

 

Clickety clack, clickety clack

 

Clickety clack, clickety clack

Over the hill, the train's on the track.

Chuffing and Puffing it goes along

Making its very own train song!

 

Puffety puff, chuffety chuff

The train makes a cloud of white stuff

Puffing and chuffing it leaves a trail

As it grinds up the hill as slow as a snail.

 

Mine also like this:

 

Chitter chatter, chitter chatter, chitter chatter chack, we're going to the station, we're going down the track and here comes.... to join up at the back!

 

To do this one you get one child to be the engine driver, and go round inside the circle moving their arms like trains wheels on a track, then you sing song and the child at front says someone's name and that child goes behind the first child putting their hands on their hips. Continue with that child choosing next child and so on until all are joined on. This is a good one for learning names too at the beginning of the year.

Song of the Train

 

by David Mcord

 

Clickety-clack,

 

Wheels on the track,

 

This is the way

 

They begin the attack:

 

Click-ety-clack,

 

Click-ety-clack,

 

Click-ety, clack-ety,

 

Click-ety

 

Clack.

 

Clickety-clack,

 

Over the crack,

 

Faster and faster

 

The song of the track:

 

Clickety-clack,

 

Clickety-clack,

 

Clickety, clackety,

 

Clackety.

 

Clack.

 

Riding in front,

 

Riding in back,

 

Everyone hears

 

The song of the track:

 

Clickety-clack,

 

Clickety-clack,

 

Clickety, Clickety,

 

Clackety

 

Clack.

The train

 

Tickerty-tack

Over the track

Far, far away

Puffing all day

Tickerty-too

Hurry up do!

Trains cannot wait

Must not be late

Tickerty-tock

Nickerty-nock

Speeding along

Singing this song

Tickerty-tackerty

Nickerty-nackerty

Tickerty-tackerty

Tock

The train goes running along the line,

 

Jicketty -can, Jicketty -can.

 

I wish it were mine, I wish it were mine,

 

Jicketty -can, Jicketty -can.

 

The engine driver stands in front ---

 

He makes it run, he makes it shunt;

 

Out of the town,

 

Out of the town,

 

Over the hill,

 

Over the down,

 

Under the bridges,

 

Across the lea,

 

Over the bridges,

 

And down to the sea,

 

With a Jicketty -can, Jicketty -can,

 

Jicketty -can, Jicketty -can,

 

Jicketty -can, Jicketty -can…

Soooooooooooup!

 

Start slowly, increase speed with each line, let "Soooooooup" be a high pitched imitation of a train whistle.

we call above the food train

it can be added to by the children,

we line children up single file and move arms like train while moving forward slowly and speeding up for each line until we stop, pull whistle and bend knees for soooouuup (mm lots of train crashes until they are used ot it)

 

we also have jelly and cream as a line

THE TRAIN IS CARRYING COAL

 

The train is carrying coal

It has 10 trucks behid

At every station the train will stop

And leave two trucks behind

 

One child is engine, ten line up behind. Chldren chug round as rhyme is said and then two children leave train and re-join circle. You can have less trucks and discard singularly.

 

Also:

One little engine

 

One little engine chugging down the track (child moves across circle)

Two little engines came chugging back (child joins train)

etc. etc
