To be shocked at the amount of holiday pay I have received?

Hello, I posted before regarding maternity leave and whether to take my holiday pay as a lump sum or whether to return to payroll. I am a primary teacher.
I decided to return to payroll, and I have 35 days accrued. I have attached the letter that I signed stating I have 35 days.
I’ve just got my payslip through today, and it’s for £336?
I was expecting it to be a lot more than that, I was thinking it would be almost back to my original wages before coming off on maternity leave?
Will I be getting £336 for months now, or will that be it?? Bit confused here!
It says Hourly Rate £22.18, and then 35 hours.
But 22.18 x 35 is 776.
My approximate figures would be...
say I do 6 hours at day at £22= £132.
£132 x 35 days I have accrued= £4620.
Or have I misunderstood how holiday pay works?
I will attach the payslip too. Can anyone shed any light on this please?

@ajandjjmum - yes!! I've always thought the same thing! When DS was originally born we were living abroad (since moved back) so I had a comparatively short maternity leave and by law did not accrue any annual leave during my mat leave. Although annoying, it did make sense to me.
