Science and Technology

Here at Harris Primary Academy Mayflower, we strive to develop an awareness and understanding of the role and importance of Science in everyday life. We appreciate  the constantly changing nature of scientific knowledge and use scientific procedures of investigation to introduce, develop and study the application of science in a broad range of contexts e.g. personal growth and health, the home, the immediate environment and  technology. We are of the view that the development of Scientific knowledge and skills are a crucial, core entitlement for all our pupils, since Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them.

We encourage children to be autonomous in their learning and try to facilitate debate and reasoning. In addition to this, the Academy gives children the work scientifically by providing the opportunity to plan and conduct practical science activities and experiments. We believe that practical activities breathe life into concepts that might otherwise seem abstract to children.

Where possible the teaching of science is also applied across the curriculum. Links to maths, literacy and other foundation subjects, such as geography and history, further enrich the children’s learning experiences.  Harris Primary Academy Mayflower regards science as an integral part of the curriculum and is dedicated to giving the children the tools to be successful scientific thinkers and practitioners. Pupils will learn about current scientists and those who have made wondrous discoveries throughout their school life here at Mayflower, this ensures the stereotypes of who and what a scientist is and does is constantly being challenged. Each year, we celebrate and promote our love for science during science week which ends with our traditional annual science fair where families and friends have an opportunity to watch experiments carried out by our future scientists! Each year, our gifted and talented pupils also have the opportunity to receive a CREST Award by taking part in a nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths).
