How to Use These Resources

TVO Learn is designed to meet each student where they are on their learning journey. Learning Activities are comprehensive and require guided instruction from an adult, while Resources for Learning, Apply the Learning prompts and Vocabulary lists work well to reinforce specific skills or to enable independent exploration of a subject. Use these helpful tips to get the most from TVO Learn.

Curriculum Overview

In grade 6 students develop communication skills, social skills, and behaviours needed to work effectively with others. At the same time, students will continue to develop their identity, increase their awareness of self, and further develop skills in identifying and managing emotions, managing stress, and embracing optimism and positive motivation.

By examining and understanding the factors that motivate or inhibit involvement in daily physical activity and considering ways of overcoming obstacles to participation, they expand their ability to take responsibility for their own fitness. They continue to build their understanding of the relationship between physical and mental health. Students will continue to develop stability and locomotor skills as they learn to perform various combinations of movements and to associate movement skills with more specific manipulation skills. Students learn how to assess risk, respond to dangerous situations in person and online, and protect themselves from a variety of social dangers, including bullying, abuse, violence, and a range of technology-related risks. Students continue to build on their understanding of consent and healthy relationships.

The expectations for health and physical education are organized into four distinct but related strands:

  • Social-Emotional Learning Skills
  • Active Living
  • Movement Competence: Skills, Concepts, and Strategies
  • Healthy Living
