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

We are curious thinkers at Seaton St. Paul's C of E Junior School and love to investigate and find out more about the world.

At Seaton St. Paul's C of E Junior School we aim to develop children's understanding of the world around them through high quality teaching and learning. Children are encouraged to investigate, solve problems and ask questions. 

Core Principles of Science Teaching and Learning

  • Children enjoy Science
  • Their learning is enriched with practical activities
  • Children are encouraged to become curious thinkers, asking questions and exploring their ideas
  • Children use appropriate scientific vocabulary to talk about their learning
  • Collaborative learning allows everyone to have a role during experiments and other practical activities
  • Children learn how to investigate systematically and begin to lead their own enquiries
  • Context allows children to make links and their learning relevant to them
  • Learning is recorded in a variety of ways

Take  a look at some of our learning in Science... 

5H loved learning about irreversible changes!

4J have been learning about evaporation and created a model to show how particles react when they are heated. They then used this to explain why evaporation happens.

5H enjoyed investigating how to separate different mixtures.

5H have been investigating the particle model.

4J learnt how the arrangement of particles dictates whether a substance is a solid, liquid or gas. Here they are arranging themselves as a solid, a liquid and a gas.

6F investigated the relationship between shadow size and distance the object is away from the light source.

Whole School Spooky Science Afternoon!

3Q enjoyed their investigation. They made thick, stretchy edible slime which tasted delicious!

3Q have written fantastic narratives called 'The Journey of a Fossil'. They explain the process of fossilisation.
