Overall Curriculum Expectations

Grade 5 expectations aim to develop learners’ knowledge and skills required for physical and health literacy. Learners gain a deeper understanding of the factors that contribute to their physical and mental health and that of others in their family and community. However, the focus is on making personal health-related choices and decisions while frequently questioning, integrating, analyzing, and applying information. Students continue to develop their locomotor and fine motor skills and improve the quality of movement by combining motor skills in sequence, examining how to relate these concepts and principles to their movement skills to further develop their sense of self and identity as competent movers.
