PE programme

The school PE programme aims to build a strong foundation on fundamental motor skills which are the basic requirement for positive experiences in sports and games in the upper primary. The success in the fundamental motor skills will empower Riverlites to pursue recreational or competitive sports and games beyond their 6 years in primary school. 


Besides the Physical Health component, the PE programme also looks into the inculcation of school values, Social Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies via games and intra-class competitions. 


The focus for Primary 1 and Primary 2 is fundamental motor skills which include locomotor skills, throwing and catching and kicking. 


The highlight for Primary 3 and Primary 4 is the application of combined skills in mini-games played within the class. 


Primary 5 and Primary 6 students will be engaged in modified games where they participate as players and/or as game officials. 


The PE Department collaborates with Student Development Team t organising camps for Primary 5 Riverlites to prepare them to be World Ready Citizen.   


In alignment with the national posture on COVID-19, the Department reached out to students on the importance of maintaining the Safety Management Measures that are put in place to ensure Structured Recess Activity and Unstructured Recess Play continue as usual.


Through these platforms, the students internalise the meaning of teamwork, sportsmanship, friendship and perseverance. Students also understand the importance of effective face-to-face communication in this digital age.

Structured Recess Activity
