Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.
Edwin Powell Hubble

At Wybunbury Delves we aim to 'light the spark for a love of learning and of life' and believe Science is a subject which offers the very best opportunities to achieve this. We work practically wherever possible to foster and maintain children's curiosity in the world around them.

The National Curriculum for 2014 sets out why we teach Science in schools:
'A high-quality Science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world's future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of Science. Through building up a body of key foundation knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how Science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.'

The aims of Science in our school are:

  • to 'light the spark for a love of learning and of life'
  • to promote and maintain curiosity about the world around us;
  • to develop scientific knowledge through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics
  • to develop an increasing ability to work scientifically;
  • to develop children's ability to pose, investigate and draw conclusions from scientific questions through practical tasks;
  • to develop and accurately use scientific language and vocabulary;
