Science is taught at Holy Family to develop in children a curiosity about the natural world and a desire to ask and discover the answers to why? what? how? – to help develop a lifelong love of learning. Science is taught through a range of enquiry-based teaching and learning methods, practical activities, out-of-classroom learning, independent and group work, problem solving, and digital technologies.
