Grade 6

At MPS we use MyCBE / PowerSchool as a tool for parents to see what is going on with their children while at school. MyCBE / PowerSchool allows parents to access demographic information, attendance, student’s assessments (the teachers’ record book of assignments and grades), report cards, and allows for course requests each year. To access this information, parents need to log in to their MyCBE / PowerSchool account (where you pay school fees and for field trips) and select their student. 

Grade 6 Complementary Program Overview

*For the 2020 - 2021 school year all students will take all courses.

Art 6

Art offers students the opportunity to create visual art using media that ensures safety in the studio setting.  Students can look forward to drawing projects that involve drawing what they see combined with artistic impressions.  Project work will culminate with students critiquing their work to share their ideas regarding what they like best about their artwork and any possible improvements they might be able to identify.

Music/Ukulele 6

Music: There are many fascinating components required to create great music.  This course will include the chance to discover a variety of music appreciation topics as well as the opportunity to develop music reading and percussion performance skills.  This course is designed to let students work at their own level.  No previous music experience necessary.  For those students who have some previous background in music, we can work with more advanced topics and techniques. 

Ukulele: Students will discover and develop skills such as rhythm, melody, harmony, singing, and reading by learning more complex songs than were covered the previous year. Through various activities, students will gain an appreciation for various music genres, song structure, and creating music for performance purposes.

Tech. 6

Students will create and collaborate with online Google tools and resources such as Drive, Slides, Drawings, Sites, Gmail, Google Classroom and D2L,  Sheets, and Forms.  Students will learn digital citizenship and 21st-century problem-solving skills they may find helpful in their future careers.  In addition, students will be challenged to think critically about what they see online and on social media.  The primary goal of the course is to effectively use a computer as a tool for core class assignments and projects.

French 6

French 6 offers students the opportunity to continue to develop French language skills as well as an appreciation for the charming and lively culture that Francophone life has to offer. Through a variety of tasks, projects and games students will gain understanding of multiple themes that may include: their neighborhood, health and wellbeing, Alberta and the environment, and holidays and celebrations.  Grade 6 students may also explore the French tradition of celebrating Le Carnaval de Québec! 

Drama 6

In drama students are asked to be the creator, performer and critic of theatrical work.  They will be creating characters and plot lines while working on such skills as vocal clarity and body control.  After the rehearsal process has completed they will perform their work for the class and work to identify and learn from the skills being presented by others.
