Core Curriculum

​​​​​Learning does not end with the ring of a school bell; it occurs in every facet of our lives. We learn every day at school, home, work, and in our community.

​​English Language Arts

Language proficiency generates confidence and competence in communicating, and allows students to excel i​n other disciplines. The provincial curriculum stresses the integrated nature of the six language arts: listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and representing.

​French

French is an official language in 33 countries worldwide. More than 130 million people speak French, on five continents, and it is the second most studied language in the world. The goal of French Immersion is to give students theopportunity to achieve, by secondary school graduation, a level of bilingualism sufficient to function well in a French-speaking community, accept a job using French as the working language, or pursure post-secondary education in French.

​Mathematics

The K to Grade 12 provincial mathematics curriculum is organized by grade and the four strands: Patterns and Relations, Statistics and Probability, Shape and Space, and Number. Hands-on learning activities, problem-solving, visualization, communication, connections to everyday life, technology, estimation, mental math and strategic instruction are means to helping students develop mathematical skills and understanding.

​​Music Ed​ucation

Music is an integral part of a well-rounded education. In the Early Years, it provides children with a multi-activity approach to acquiring basic literacy, performance and appreciation skills. During the Middle Years, the sequential development of these skills is continued and constantly reinforced through the study of a more specialized performance area.

Physical ​and Health Education

Physical health, mental wellness and safety are essential to a student’s success and development. The following general learning outcomes summarize the goals for Physical and Health Education:

  • Movement

  • Fitness Management

  • Safety

  • Personal and Social Management

  • Healthy Lifestyle Practices

The Louis Riel School Division is dedicated to the health and well-being of its students, and stresses the importance of safe and active living for a healthy future.

Science

Students need to develop inquiry, problem-solving and decision-making abilities, if they are to become lifelong learners and scientifically literate individuals. The more effectively students can interpret information, solve problems, make informed decisions, accommodate change and create new knowledge, the more prepared they will be to interact with the world around them. Science education is a key element in developing scientific literacy and in building a strong future for Canada's young people. Visit the Manitoba Education website for more details regarding the provincial science curriculum.

Social Studies

Social studies helps students acquire the skills, knowledge and values necessary to become active, democratic citizens and ​contributing members of their communities, locally, nationally and globally. The provincial curriculum includes citizenship, the core concept that focuses social studies learning at all grades and provides opportunities for students to explore the complexities of citizenship in four areas:

  • Active Democratic Citizenship in Canada

  • Canadian Citizenship for the Future

  • Citizenship in the Global Context

  • Environmental Citizenship

Visual Arts

Fostering an appreciation for the arts promotes understanding. Cultivating artistic abilities encourages creativity and communication. When students learn to respond to art, they grow. The Louis Riel School Division celebrates its Visual Arts programming, and believes that arts education is not about the final product, but rather the journey. Students are encouraged to celebrate in their progress and development.

Let’s make snowmen!! Our staff is certainly thinking of our students on a daily basis. Looking at the forecast for Sunday, we thought it would be WONDERFUL for students that are able, to make a snowman at home (in your yard) and send a picture to your child’s teacher to share.

Some teachers have reached out to say that they have items here ready for pickup. If you’d rather avoid coming in to the school, simply park beside the school on St Jean Baptiste and call our office by 3:30 next week at 233-0222 and we can run the work out to your vehicle. https://t.co/wTyqYkPZey

So important to appreciate the beauty of the seasons changing during this challenging time. Very few students here today but is it ever nice to be outside in the bright sun seeing them play. Days are getting warmer. So important to stay positive. https://t.co/RZj9BOvEWl
