Science

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.

In KS1 Science is taught in individual classes. In KS2 it is taught as part of our enrichment day, through a two year series of units:
