`Water' great way for young pupils to learn.

PUPILS swapped their classroom for a day out at Dwr Cymru Welsh Water's Cog Moors Environmental Education Centre.

The class of 24 Year Two pupils from Trowbridge Infants School visited the centre in Dinas Powys with the deputy head of the Cardiff-based primary school, Lis Trotman.

They spent the day examining pond life and taking part in a mini-beast safari.

Lis, who spent three days at the centre during February on a short-term secondment, said: ``My secondment and subsequent class visit to Cog Moors Environmental Education Centre were fantastic learning experiences, not only for the children but for myself also.

``As a result we have booked a return visit for later in the term.'' Education co-ordinator for the Cog Moors centre Liz Evans said: ``We are committed to improving the awareness and understanding of water and the vital role it plays in our everyday lives, and hosting students and teachers at our education centres is an ideal way to do this.''
