CHILDREN: It's Driver Dan's Story Train.
CHILDREN: Hello, Driver Dan.
# Which of our friends are we going to see?
# Which of our friends do you think it will be?
# Climb aboard and travel with me
# All aboard the story train! #
All aboard the story train!
Twinkle, have you spotted someone? I can't see who it is. Can you?
I can see an arm.
It's Hop! Look, that's her red backpack.
And where there's a Hop, there's always a Hip.
-There's Hip too!
-Are they playing a game?
-They look funny.
You were right, a funny waving Hip and Hop, with Tallulah.
But there was someone else there too. Did you see?
-He's there too!
That's quite a crowd! Let's go and see what they're doing.
-Hi, Driver Dan. Guess what we're playing?
We're playing Guess What. Ha-ha-ha!
That's what the game's called.
But Loopy doesn't want to play a game with no noise or speaking.
Hi, Driver Dan! Yeah, the game is too quiet for me.
Boing! Boing! Bounce!
To play Guess What, you take it in turns to pretend to be something.
But you're not allowed to speak.
Ah, I see, you're miming.
Yes, miming. My turn now. Guess what I am?
You guess too, Driver Dan.
Um, a wheel.
Can you guess what Tallulah is pretending to be?
I know, a windmill.
Are you a windmill, Tallulah?
No, I don't think Tallulah is a dinosaur either.
I know, you're a helicopter!
Yes, a whirly twirler just like the Vrooms!
Ha-ha! Yes, you guessed right.
Whirly twirlers go much higher, like this!
Come and play with us, Loopy.
Yes, it can be your turn next.
No, thanks. I don't want to play a game where you can't make a noise.
It's much more fun shouting.
Hm. I think it's because you don't know how to mime and be silent.
What?! I could, if I wanted to.
And if I want to, I will.
Hm, I don't think he can be silent.
Your turn, Driver Dan.
I can be silent if I want to.
Why doesn't anyone believe me?
You're a caterpillar!
See? You can't ever be silent, Loopy.
Are you a ballet dancer, Driver Dan?
Ha! You're being the Story Train, Driver Dan!
Yes, that's right.
Well done, Loopy.
And you, Twinkle.
Come and join in, Loopy.
You won, so it's your turn to do a mime.
Loopy doesn't want to play if he has to try and keep silent.
I can be silent, and do a good mime if I want to.
Erm, I've just got to think of what to be, that's all.
I'm going to practise being silent and then I'll have my turn.
That'll give me time to think of the very best mime.
Good idea, Loopy.
You go next, Hip.
Ooh! Guess what I am?
Erm... Are you a yo-yo, Hip?
You're Loopy on the trampoline!
Do you have any ideas?
I know, is Hip being a bouncer?
I think you're right. Maybe he needs to bounce a bit higher as a clue.
I know what I'll be, silent Loopy.
Oh, no! My trampoline!
You said you were practising being silent.
-Driver Dan! Driver Dan!
-It's my trampoline!
It's Hip's turn now, Loopy. It's your turn next.
Kangaroo! A rocket to the moon?
Great practising, Loopy. A bouncing ball!
A dolphin jumping in the sea.
I'll use the trampoline. Of course! Great idea, Loopy!
-Ssh! Hip, you're supposed to mime!
Loopy, let me through!
Oh! It's the trampoline! It's broken!
Stop! Don't get onto the trampoline, Hip.
Let's have a look.
-Oh, thank you, Loopy.
-Ssh! Ha-ha-ha! No speaking aloud!
-Yes, you're right, Twinkle.
I was being a bouncer.
Oh, phew! The Guess What game is hard work.
Sorry. You were right.
Sometimes speaking and making a noise is better than miming.
Fixed by the Fix-O-Tron.
Thanks, Driver Dan.
-It's story time!
We're all hooked up!
Three carriages in one stop today, so straight to Story Corner.
Are we ready to go?
Are you ready too? Then let's go!
CHILDREN: All aboard the Story Train!
I love stories.
-I think it'll be about guessing.
Who's ready for a story?
I know just the book.
Is everybody settled down and ready to listen?
-I'm ready, Driver Dan.
And all of you, sitting down comfy and ready to listen?
CHILDREN: Yes, Dan.
This story is called Dance Class.
It was written by Sue Nicholson
and the pictures are by Caroline Mockford.
It was Ruby's dance class,
but Madame Rosa, the dance teacher, was late.
"Let's make up a dance while we're waiting," suggested Jack.
"I know," said Grace, "We can be grasses swaying in the breeze."
So everyone reached their arms high in the air
and swayed gently from side to side.
Look! I can do that too.
Well done, Hop. Let's see what else the children do.
"The breeze can get stronger," called Jamila.
"We can be leaves blown all about by the wind."
So everyone twirled round and round like swirling leaves.
"It's getting stormy," cried Sophie.
"We can be birds flying home to their nests!"
So everyone stretched out their arms
and swooped and wheeled across the dance floor.
"Let's be tiny creatures scared of thunder," said Tariq.
So everyone crouched down and hid their heads under their arms.
Twinkle doesn't like thunder.
Don't worry, Twinkle. They're only pretending.
"Watch out for the lightning!" yelled Lily.
Everyone darted from side to side pretending to dodge the lightning.
"The lightning's struck a tree!" cried Joshua.
"We'll have to jump over it."
Everyone leapt high into the air
as if they were jumping over a fallen tree trunk.
"What a lovely dance!" exclaimed Madame Rosa
who had been watching from the doorway.
"I think we should perform it at our next show.
"What shall we call it?"
They all agreed they should call their dance A Stormy Day.
The show was a fantastic success
and everyone who came to watch loved it.
The end. Did you like the story?
-ALL: Oh, yeah!
-Even the thunder bits!
Were they miming, just like us?
Yes, it was a kind of mime, but with dance.
It would be even better if they made the stormy noises too! Bang! Crash!
And now it's your turn. Which bit did you like best?
Come on, it's time to show me the story.
We're swaying in the breeze just like the children.
It's getting windy!
Whee! Look at me! Spinning like a leaf!
I'm being a leaf too!
It's making me dizzy.
We're flying like birds.
Flapping our wings.
Round and round and round.
Jump, jump, jump!
-That's the end of our dance show. Thank you!
-ALL: Thank you!
Thanks for showing me the story, everyone.
That was great! Whoa!
Sorry, Driver Dan!
Guess what I am?
You're a stormy day, just like in the story!
And I am the dance teacher Madame Rosa
and I say, "Well done, Loopy!
"Well done, everyone."
Glad you enjoyed the story, everyone.
-Now it's time to go. All aboard!
-ALL: All aboard the Story Train.
Bye, everyone. It's time to go.
But let's come back soon, because we all love stories!
-CHILDREN: Bye, Driver Dan!
I like stories about ballerinas.
I like dragon stories.
Tractor stories are the best.
I like monster stories.

Join a loveable cast of animated friends as Driver Dan goes on an exciting journey to Story Corner.
Loopy wants to join in a mime game but he's not very good at mime because he can never stay silent! Each time he speaks he loses the game, so he decides to have one more go and promises that nothing will make him speak until he wins. Suddenly there is a problem with a carriage and Loopy really needs to tell his friends about it, but everyone keeps telling him to shush, so Loopy tries his best to mime his important message.
