Sophie goes out for the day

A day out in Warwickshire ...

Sophie Bear and Mrs Keen have gone for a drive in the country. Mrs Keen remembered a pretty village near Little Bear's first school in Dunchurch, called Wolston. "They have a green, a stream and some bridges." she told Sophie.

Sophie wanted to know if there was a chocolate shop but you know how greedy she is!

They parked the car and went for a walk around the village. There were two bridges over the little stream. Sophie sat on one and looked down - Careful Sophie - don't fall!


They also had an old red phonebox. "What's that for?", asked Sophie, "It's for making phone calls", answered Mrs Keen. "Why not use your mobile?" "Not everyone has mobile phones and sometimes they might be broken! In the days before mobile phones everyone used payphone boxes like this one."

"Oooh - you're old", said Sophie cheekily. She laughed so much she nearly fell in the stream.

Then she decided to try out the phone box and call her Grandma who was on holiday.

Then they went into Birmingham, which is a big city like London. It has lots of shops and restaurants. They even found a very special one that made doughnuts. Sophie pressed her snout up against the glass and watched them coming down the line! "Yum!"

Mrs Keen bought a big box full of doughnuts to take home. Sophie even got a balloon which she was really pleased with. She kept waving it in the car on the way home.



Parent's Note

Sophie visited Wolston, nr Dunchurch first. She recommends visiting the village centre where there is a very pretty little green, a stream and two bridges. Limited parking on the roadside but it is free!

Then Sophie went into Birmingham City Centre to Selfridges Krispy Kreme factory. She parked in the Pallasades NCP but watch out as car parking is pricey. Better to park out and get the train.
