By the end of Year 3, students use their understanding of materials and the behaviour of heat to suggest explanations for everyday observations. They describe how they can use science investigations to respond to questions.

 

Students use their experiences to identify questions and make predictions about scientific investigations.

 

They follow procedures to collect and recor 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.
