Science

At Wybers we aim to provide children with the opportunity to develop their scientific knowledge, skills and attitudes about the world in which we live. We have 5 core principles which we apply to our teaching and learning of science:

  • We develop our curiosity through exploring, investigating and experimenting.

  • We are not afraid to take risks.

  • We ask questions to drive our scientific thinking forward.

  • We can discuss and explain our scientific thinking and ideas.

  • We have fun with science!

In Key Stage 1, we encourage children to develop their knowledge and understanding of life processes and living things, materials and their properties and physical processes. Throughout their learning in science, children will work scientifically through making observations, identifying and classifying, performing simple tests, asking questions and using scientific equipment.                         

Key Stage 2  (click on this link to see more info & pictures)

In Key Stage 2, we encourage children to develop their knowledge and understanding of physics, chemistry and biology. Throughout their learning in science, children will work scientifically through planning different types of scientific enquiry, making predictions and justifying reasons, performing tests using a range of scientific equipment, recording findings using scientific language, reporting and presenting their findings and drawing conclusions.  

Science in Key stage 2 has just got more exciting with the introduction of Empiribox. Empiribox is an exciting resource which provides inspiring, hands on experiments to use within the classroom which we now have at Wybers!
