Science at Seaton St. Paul's C of E Junior School

Here at Seaton St Paul’s C of E Junior School we are curious thinkers. Our Science curriculum focuses on developing our pupils understanding of the world around them through high quality teaching and learning. Pupils are encouraged to investigate, solve problems and ask questions. Here at Seaton St Paul’s C of E Junior School we believe in developing our pupils’ love and knowledge of the natural world. We learn about topics such as the skeletal system for both animals and humans, plant nutrition and reproduction, the digestive system, space, sound and forces amongst many more. Each year group conducts practical experiments to further pupils understanding of scientific principals and methodology. In our school we enjoy taking our pupils on exciting trips to help them further their learning.
