Welcome to Grade 6! My name is Mrs. Edwards and I am the Grade 6 teacher at CTK. Grade 6 is a fun and busy year with many interesting projects, the introduction to Band with our Band teacher, and our annual Grade 6 Camp trip at the end of the school year.

During the year, we follow the Manitoba Curriculum in all subjects. In Science, we study Flight, Electricity, Astronomy, and the Diversity of Living Things. During the year in Mathematics, we cover topics such as patterns, equations, decimals, fractions, ratios, percent, geometry, measurement, transformations, data analysis, and probability. In Social Studies, we continue looking at Canadian History picking up from where Grade 5 left off beginning with Confederation, and moving through major events such as the Northwest Resistance, immigration and settling the West, WWI, the Great Depression, women’s suffrage, WWII, and onward. In ELA, we do novel studies, writing using the Six + One Writing Traits, TUSC (Totally Unbelievable Speakers Club), guided reading, literature circles, spelling, and grammar.

Of course, we also have Religion classes and participate in school masses. Students will be following the We Believe: We are God’s People program with accompanying textbook. In this program, we look at four major units which include Creation, the story of Moses, the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, and the birth of Christ and Jesus’ teachings. We also will be learning about many of the saints, and the celebrations of the Liturgical year (Advent, Lent, Easter).
