Swanwick - Year 3 Trip

As part of our topic work on Ponds and Wildlife we will be visiting Swanwick Lake Nature Reserve on Wednesday 29th March 2017.

The children will need a packed lunch and a drink. As the Nature Reserve promotes re-cycling they run a ‘waste free’ lunch competition. The attached letter suggests ideas for the children’s packed lunches.

The children will leave school at 9.00am and return to school by 3.00pm. They do not need to wear school uniform but the Reserve suggests.


  • Long sleeved top (brambles and insects!)
  • Long trousers (brambles and insects!)
  • Trainers (they will be walking a lot)
  • Wellie boots if it is wet.
  • Sun hats etc if the weather is hot/sunny.

The children will be pond dipping, mini beast hunting and looking at insect habitats.
