ELC’s Math Curriculum

ELC follows the new Ontario Curriculum (2020), which incorporates six learning strands: social emotional learning skills in Mathematics and Mathematical processes; Number; Algebra (coding); Data; Spatial Sense (measurement), and Financial literacy. By focusing on mathematical process skills, teachers empower children to think mathematically. There are seven process skills: problem solving; reasoning and proving; reflecting; connecting; communicating; representing; and selecting tools and strategies. Our teachers explicitly discuss social emotional learning skills with the children to support their use of mathematical processes and their learning in connection with the other mathematical strands. Children learn to identify and manage their emotions, use strategies to be resourceful in working through challenging problems, communicate effectively, and learn to think critically and creatively. 
In the coming weeks we will highlight mathematics in practice at ELC, with the children making sense of the world around them through the mathematical processes available to them.

Assessment at The City School
At The City School we follow certain practices for assessment to evidence your child’s progress against the Ontario Curriculum expectations and our inquiry-based programmes that prioritize the growth of the child.
