Welcome to Grade 6!

We're thrilled to welcome you and your child to Grade 6, where the adventure of learning continues to inspire and empower! At East Lake School, we strive to provide an engaging and supportive setting where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

What to Expect in Grade 6

Grade 6 is a pivotal year filled with opportunities for growth, exploration, and academic achievement. Our dedicated teachers create a dynamic and inclusive classroom atmosphere where students feel empowered to take ownership of their learning and pursue their interests. Here's a glimpse of what your child can expect in Grade 6:

  • Literacy: Building upon foundational skills, students will further develop their reading comprehension, writing proficiency, and critical thinking abilities through engaging literature, writing projects, and literacy activities.
  • Numeracy: Math concepts come alive as students dive into multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, geometry, algebraic thinking, and problem-solving in interactive and hands-on ways.
  • Science: From exploring the wonders of the universe to investigating the properties of matter and energy, students will engage in hands-on experiments and scientific inquiry, fostering curiosity and discovery.
  • Social Studies:Through stories, discussions, and projects, students will delve into Canadian history, geography, government, and citizenship, gaining a deeper understanding of our country and its place in the world.
  • Arts and Physical Education: Creative expression and physical activity are integrated into the curriculum through art projects, music, drama, movement, and physical education classes, allowing students to explore their talents and develop healthy habits.
  • Career and Technology Foundations (CTF): CTF provides interactive learning opportunities that spark curiosity, foster creativity, and inspire innovation. From delving into digital media and design to foods and construction, CTF encourages students to uncover their interests and cultivate vital skills for their future.



Effective communication between home and school is essential for your child's success. Our Grade 6 teachers are committed to keeping families informed and involved in their child's education. Here's how you can stay connected:

  • Google Classroom: Teachers may use Google Classroom to share assignments, resources, and important updates with students and families.
  • Class Website: Some teachers may maintain a class website where you can access important information, upcoming events, and helpful resources.
  • Class Social Media Accounts: Follow our class social media accounts, such as Instagram, to see highlights from the classroom and celebrate student achievements.
  • Weekly Email Updates: Expect to receive weekly email updates from your child's teacher, providing insights into classroom activities, upcoming events, and ways to support your child's learning at home.
