What will we focus our learning on?

The BC curriculum was re-designed in 2016 and consists of 3 parts for each subject: Big Ideas, Curricular Competencies and Content.

Core Competencies:  Communication, Thinking and Personal & Social are also woven throughout the curriculum. 

These documents are written for teachers, and can be confusing.  

Click on your grade level to see the curriculum summarized as Learning Frameworks in the subjects of Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science and French Immersion.

These frameworks can be used as a guide to inform what you may focus on while you are at home.  Remember, to start small.

If things get frustrating, it is okay to move on. Take a deep break, keep your sense of your humour and celebrate all successes often... No matter how small!
