Our curriculum content is mandated in the Program of Studies provided by Alberta Learning.
At Copperfield, we strive to personalize learning. Learning strategies are differentiated and designed to honour individual student needs. In addition, a “School Learning Team” exists to work with teachers and parents in this regard. The SLT includes the principal, the assistant principal, diversity teacher, classroom teacher, Area V strategists, nurses and other specialists as required.
Any questions parents have regarding their child’s learning should first be directed to the classroom teacher. When necessary, follow-up meetings can be arranged with the teacher, parent, SLT and/or an administrator by calling 403-817-3512 then dialing 0.
Parents can help children develop oral language skills by talking about each school day, listening to their stories, and reading to them singing with them and playing with them.
Grades 1 & 2
The motivation which comes from parent interest in children’s school work can be most valuable. Home supported learning at this level might consist of an informal review of the subject under study at school, reading books, viewing programs or visiting areas suggested by the school.
Grades 3 & 4
Formal assignments may be given at the discretion of the teacher. These may be assigned to students who need special attention, to students who have not completed regular classroom work, or may be an extension of the subject under study at school. Special Note Teachers are not responsible for providing homework for families who choose to travel on student instructional days.
