The sixth grade at Christ the King is split into two classes: one for the boys and one for the girls. Splitting the 6th grade by gender will allow the students to feel more comfortable expressing their thoughts as well as help to maintain a focus on the subject matter in a smaller group. Both classes will be covering the same material and will occasionally join together for certain topics/events. Sixth grade is only offered in the evening.
The goal of this year is for the students to develop a deeper understanding of the Mass and the Commandments. The year will begin with a Bible study on John 6 and lessons on the liturgy and parts of the Mass. This portion of the year will culminate in a class Mass where the students will participate as much as possible by doing the readings, bringing up the offertory etc. They will also be learning important hymns of the Church throughout the year
The second half of the year will focus on conscience formation and learning to live a moral life. They will cover the Commandments in a deeper way as they approach adolescence. .
The text for this year will be the Faith and Life Series for Grade 6: Following Christ.
