TRAVEL – UNIT – 4
Safety First – Enid Blyton
Listen, recite and enjoy.
Up the street I look to see
If any traffic’s near to me,
Down the street I look as well
And listen for a horn or bell.
There’s something coming – wait a bit,
If I run out I may be hit,
But now the road is nice and clear,
No car or motor–bus is near,
I’ll run across the road so wide,
And so get safely to the other side.
wait a bit : wait for sometime, ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಸಮಯ ಕಾಯು
Sing and enjoy:
The wheels of the bus go round and round
round and round
round and round
The wheels of the
bus go round and
round all through
The people on the
bus go up and down
up and down
up and down
The people on the bus go up and down
all through the town
A Jolly Ride on the Namma Metro
“Ready to go shopping?” Aunt Anusha smiled.
“No Aunty!” Apoorva said.
“We want to go for a jolly ride on the Namma Metro!” added Sathvik.
Apoorva and Sathvik were visiting their uncle, aunt and cousin Valli in Bengaluru. They had come from a small village called Nandipura. Nandipura has cars, buses, rickshaws and cycles. It does not have a Metro.
“Where is the Namma Metro?” Apoorva asked.
Aunt Anusha pointed to the Namma Metro Station.
“Underground?” asked a surprised Sathvik.
“Look!” Apoorva said. “A stair that moves!”
“It’s an escalator,” Valli explained.
“It’s safe,” Aunt Anusha said. “You hold the handrail and step off in time!”
“Whee!” Apoorva said. “This is fun!”
“And so fast!”said Sathvik.
“Wait here,” Aunt Anusha said when they were down. I’ll get the tokens!”
“What’s our train called?” Apoorva asked, looking around.
“Namma Metro, it’s Our Metro.” Valli explained.
“How will we know which train to get on to?” Sathvik demanded.
“Each train has a different coloured line on it,” their Aunt explained. “We are taking the blue. Come on!”
The children followed their aunt to a small gate.
“Put your tokens in here,” explained Valli. “The gate will let you pass! But keep your tokens carefully with you.”
Apoorva held her token tightly. What if she lost it and was not allowed to travel? She put in her token and the gate opened for her.
“Isn’t the platform beautiful?” Valli said with pride.
“Yes,” agreed Apoorva. “So clean too!”
“Here’s our train!” said Aunt Anusha.
The train rushed in. The minute it stopped, the sliding doors opened and some people stepped out.
“Come on!” Apoorva jumped in excitedly. “We’ll never get seats!”
“Wait!” Valli pulled her back, “Let the people get off!”
Finally the children got into the train and sat down.
“There is nothing to see through the windows!” Apoorva said sadly. “We’ll be travelling underground!”
“Imagine!” Sathvik said, “All those cars and trucks driving over our heads!”
Apoorva looked up at the roof, as if expecting to see all the vehicles.
“We are off, Valli!” Sathvik exclaimed.
However, Valli was getting up to offer her seat to an elderly lady.
“Look!” said Apoorva, “We are travelling above the ground now!”
“Look at the traffic jam!” Apoorva said. “And we are moving above all that noise and confusion!”
“How will we know when we have to get off?” Sathvik asked worriedly.
“There,” his Aunty pointed to the display window. “We have to get off at the next station!”
“Can’t you hear the announcements?” Apoorva said.
“Come on, children!” their aunt called.
The train stopped, the doors opened and they were out on the platform.
“Did you have fun?” their uncle asked.
“‘Yes”, said Apoorva.
“Can we go on the Namma Metro again?” Sathvik asked. “It’s such fun!

Run! – Mary Daunt
AWAY from the city
And into the sun,
Out to the country,
Run! Run! Run !
Run in the raindrops !
Run ‘neath the trees !
Run little races
With each little breeze !
Run down the hillside,
Run up the lane;
Run through the meadow,
Then run back again!
Run and be merry
All through the day!
Run to the country,
