Creative pupils learn maths and multiplication skills using wood blocks in the woods

By Jill Dando News

The pupils at one of Britain’s smallest schools are pressing ahead with their outdoor learning in their beautiful wooded area.

Buzzard Class at Pawlett Primary School Academy in Somerset practised their multiplication skills in the woods. They creatively used natural materials to calculate answers, writing numbers on wood blocks as part of their learning.

Outside learning is a core value of the school and they plan to expand it still further over the months and years to come.

Principal Emma Barker said “The children are having great fun and embracing outside learning with huge enthusiasm. It is wonderful to see.

“This is another example of our creative curriculum delivery. 

The school has had a fantastic two years since becoming part of The Priory Learning Trust.

The school, which has a history in the village over 150 years ago, is situated in incredibly stunning grounds with sports pitches, a forest school, adventure playground, and next door to a state-of-the-art community club with a 3G football pitch.

It has its own Jill Dando News Centre for pupils.
