I can define key words. I can describe my


I have a few ideas and can describe them. I

dont really know how to link my ideas

I can explain why things happen and apply my

ideas. I can classify and sequence. I can link my
ideas together. I can compare and contrast
different things.

I can make predictions and write

hypotheses. I can evaluate and generalise
using my ideas.I can apply my ideas to new
contexts and subjects. I can imagine and
create new things using my ideas.
