Maths buzz for eager pupils at start of new term in picturesque primary

By Jill Dando News

Year 3 pupils at Pawlett Primary School Academy in Somerset have eagerly settled back into their new term with some fun maths learning.

The pupils learned how to consolidate two digital numbers as they built confidence in their mathematical studies.

It is just one part of a high-achieving and fun school that also places a big emphasis on outside learning at its picturesque countryside campus.

Earlier this year pupils and staff unveiled their stunning new Learning Lodge with hexagonal features and sensory plants.

It supports all subjects including maths, English, religious education, computing, Science and more.

Principal Emma Barker said: “The pupils enjoyed their work consolidating digital numbers. There was a definite buzz across the class. The pupils have enthusiastically entered into their studies after the summer.”


The Pawlett school site is in one of Britain’s most picturesque settings near the Mendip Hills once inhabited by King Alfred the Great.

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 is part of The Priory Learning Trust and has its own Jill Dando News Centre for pupils.
