Alberta Education defines literacy as the ability, confidence and willingness to engage with language to acquire, construct and communicate meaning in all aspects of daily living.
MATH & NUMERACY
School mathematics begins with the study of numbers, patterns, shape, space, statistics and probability and becomes increasingly abstract as students move up in grades. Numeracy involves examining a particular context or situation and drawing on the relevant mathematical understandings to make an informed and personally suitable decision.
As children enter the school system, there is a strong focus on the development of reading and writing skills. Children engage in learning opportunities that have them interacting with many different forms of text, in print and digital forms, using words, visuals and graphics.
Learning about science provides a framework for students to understand and interpret the world around them. In Science, students learn about the physical world, ecology and technology allowing them to develop an understanding of the many applications of science in daily life.
Social studies provides opportunities for students to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge that will enable them to become engaged, active, informed and responsible citizens. Social studies helps students develop their sense of self and community, encouraging them to affirm their place as citizens in an inclusive, democratic society.
As part of a daily quality physical education program each student at CKCS is active in the gymnasium for one period every day! With a focus on Physical Literacy and Fundamental Movement Skills, students are engaged in a variety of engaging activities.
