Maths has been brought to life at a Clevedon primary school thanks to the Winter Olympics.

Yeo Moor Primary School pupils took part in a WOW day by attending school in a variety of Olympic sportswear.

Children arrived at school wrapped up warm in wooly hats and thick coats in preparation for the day-long event.

The Tacky And The Winter Games event saw children take part in fun workshops and learning exercises which were all about maths.

Parents and carers were also invited to take part.

Headteacher Roland Lovatt said: “This was a tremendous event of learning and great fun for the children.

“We want to say a big thank you to all the parents and carers for giving up their time to share in their children’s learning.

“It really does make a difference.”

The WOW day was led by key stage two maths teacher Sarah Roden.
