Science and Technology

At Harris Junior Academy Carshalton, we strive to develop an awareness and understanding of the role and importance that Science plays in our everyday lives. We appreciate the constantly changing nature of scientific knowledge and use scientific procedures of investigation to introduce, develop and study 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 in the world around them.

While studying Science, our children focus on four different aspects:

  • Scientific enquiry – Investigating and following instructions
  • Life processes – Humans and other animals, green plants, variation and classification, living things in the environment.
  • Materials and their Properties – grouping, sorting, changing materials.
  • Physical Processes – electricity, forces & motion, light & sound, light & dark
