Welcome to Grade 7!

Grade 7 is a significant year at St. Mary’s as students near the end of their elementary journey and look ahead to high school.
We focus our study into three themed units: Who Am I? and The World Today; My Link to the Past; and The Future is Ours.

Curriculum

The curriculum navigates our three themes as we integrate Catholic Worldview into everything we do.

  • We demonstrate the impact of First Nations influences by incorporating First People’s Principles of Learning.

  • In Socials we study ancient civilizations and their influence on the modern world.

  • Science provides exploration in Life and Earth Sciences, Chemistry and Electricity.

  • Math seeks to build on foundational numeracy skills while challenging students to apply these skills in real life.

  • Language Arts creates exposure to literature; developing communication in written and oral form.

  • In Applied Design we concentrate on textiles, woodworking, and Foods studies.

  • Technology, French, Music, and Art are integrated in a cross curricular format.

  • PE and Health occur with daily physical activity and creating a healthy you both physically and mentally.

  • Preparing for Confirmation is the highlight of our year. For Religion both the Chosen and Theology of the Body for Teens programs are used.

Our Year

Students participate in inquiry based learning and put the Core Competencies into practice. They are encouraged to be examples of their faith to those around them.
Grade 7 Camp, Spirit Day, a field water study, an Egyptian dig, and the water slides are just some of the wonderful opportunities to look forward to!
