  • By the end of Year 3, students group living things based on observable features and distinguish them from non-living things.
  • Students use their experiences to identify questions and make predictions about scientific investigations to respond to questions.
  • They follow procedures to collect and record observations and suggest possible reasons for their findings, based on patterns in their data.
  • They describe how safety and fairness were considered and they use diagrams and other representations to communicate their ideas.
