BC’s New Curriculum
Intermediate (Grades 4-6)
• The Grade 4-6 Intermediate Program follows the BC Ministry of Education guidelines and curriculum (see Curriculum at a Glance).
• Students learn at their own pace; programming is based on student interest, strengths, and learning needs
• Project-based and inquiry-based learning is strongly encouraged and often encompasses multiple subject areas
• Remedial support is provided and resources are suggested based on individual need
• Gr. 4: Bridging the transition from primary to intermediate, resources for our Grade 4 program are presented in a Grade 4 Moodle Classroom. Together the parent(s) and teacher discuss resources, programs, and activities to develop a plan for each subject area.
• Gr. 5-6: EBUS offers online courses for each of the core subjects in Grades 5-6. Each course contains all the necessary information, activities and assessments to complete the subject curriculum. Courses are optional and additional resources and activities are also available in grade specific classroom pages.
