Pawlett school opens Learning Lodge to enhance pupils’ learning experience

A STUNNING new Learning Lodge has been officially opened at Pawlett Primary School Academy.

It is light, bright, hexagonal-shaped like bees’ honeycomb, and full of sensory plants.

Principal Emma Barker, who opened the lodge using an environment-friendly rope, said: “This Learning Lodge opens up yet another wonderful outside space for us to use all year round.

“We are passionate about Forest School-style learning and the pupils are already enjoying this new facility.”

At the back of the lodge is a sensory garden full of plants and wildlife. It also has a quirky floor which is made up of hexagons. There are multiple beanbags for comfort.

The lodge will support all subjects including maths, English, religious education, computing and science.

Mrs Barker added: “Everything we do is to help pupils on their learning journey – this is a magnificent addition to that.“

Toby, 9, said: “The design shows that we are a team just like bees! The floor is hexagonal and looks like honeycomb – bees work in a team just like us.”
