4th-5th Grade (Cycle 3)

In Cycle 3, students reinforce, consolidate, and expand their knowledge across the curriculum.

They apply a new rigor and exactitude to their studies that facilitates communication, lends depth to reasoning, and permits increasingly complex oral and written expression. In Cycle 3, students further establish the structural and organizational foundation that culminates in the autonomy required for future academic success.

Language Arts (Etudes de langage)

Through reading and discussing well-known children’s literature, students will strengthen their basic language arts skills.

Human Culture (La culture humaniste)

History and geography studies provide students with a thorough knowledge of our world. Students are encouraged to go beyond simplistic cause-and-effect relationships to build a deeper understanding of the world. Reflecting on current events around the world, students are asked to become more aware of fundamental human rights. This will lead to a better understanding of the rules of their social environment (nation, community, family, school and class).

Arts (Pratiques artistiques)

Through alternating between receptive and productive activities, students enhance their artistic curiosity, develop their skills, and learn to express themselves.


Mathematics and Science (Culture mathématique et scientifique)

Problem-solving is essential to the mastery of mathematics. The ability to search, think in abstract ways, and prove allows students to establish connections among previously acquired and new concepts.

Science and Technology (Science et technologie) 

Students use their base of experience and a hands-on approach to rationally investigate objects and events beyond their personal environment. They learn to formulate questions, as well as propose rational solutions derived from observations, measurements, data comparisons, and documentation. Through library and information technology each student is encouraged to become a lifelong reader/learner. In Cycle 3, students acquire more advanced research skills that support and enhance learning across the curriculum.


Physical Education (Education physique)

Physical education develops the student physically, socially, cognitively, and emotionally. Students engage in a wide variety of activities including collective, individual, and expressive games.
