Dear Parents of Chaffey-Burke, we are interested in gathering some feedback from you about our two previous curriculum nights and the implementation of the newly designed curriculum. One of the ways for us to learn more about your thinking, is with some questions that we have designed to give us insight as we plan to look at assessment and reporting for the implementation of the newly designed curriculum.
Please take a few minutes to complete our school survey
Over the next 6 months of this school year, schools will be engaged in implementing the new curriculum designed by teachers with the ministry of education. On April 26 th & May 13 th, teachers from Burnaby will be congregating to discuss, share and plan for the implementation of the new curriculum next fall.
On January 28th, our staff will be presenting further some practices in Literacy. Particularly Reading – “What good reading looks like? & ” How will reading look with the new curriculum?” We are inviting parents to come and join us , with their children that night to learn more about the learning that is taking place in our school, with an eye to building community and awareness for the future.
As we move forward into the new curriculum implementation there are some good videos on the ministry website for parents to see and help with the understanding of competencies and the implementation of the new curriculum. Please click on the link to the tools page and watch the Planning – English Videos on the Curriculum Model to learn more about the various components to the new curriculum. The graphic image of Know-Do-Understand explains how teachers are looking at the integration of the new curriculum.
Current, we are planning another Parent Information Night in January that will look at the implementation of the new curriculum from the content area of Literacy – Reading, Aboriginal Education & competencies. We look forward to seeing as many of you at our evening to share the wonderful learning and planning that is happening at our school.
