PE - Physical Education

Physical Education (Reception and Primary)

Reception Year

The PE programme in the reception year focuses on teaching, developing and reinforcing basic motor (walking, running, jumping, etc) and non-motor (throwing, catching, etc) skills and concepts. The program also aims to develop the child’s spatial awareness and social skills.

A 12-week introductory sports kinesthetics course conducted by professional instructors.


Building on the skills from reception year that the child has attained, the PE program for P1 and P2 moves the child on to handling sports equipments and playing simple games. They also get lots of opportunities to work together and play as a team.

At Grade 3 and Grade 4, the child gets exposed to common organized games like Cricket, Basketball, Soccer, Football and Badminton. They learn the basic skills and concepts for each game and get to play in small teams and matches.

The games played in Grade 3 and Grade 4 are revisited in Grade 5 and Grade 6. However, the focus at Grade 5 and Grade 6 is games exposure and the child gets to learn more new games. Games skills and concepts continue to be taught and reinforced.

In addition to the land-based skills and games being covered, Swimming is also taught. The 4 basic swim strokes are taught from Grade 1 to Grade 4 and life-saving skills are taught in Grade 5 and Grade 6.

Camps also feature as part of the PE curriculum. Camps provide the child opportunities to experience independence and discover his or her own abilities and limits. Camp for Grade 2 and Grade 3 focuses on letting the child get a feel of camping and staying in an unfamiliar environment, potentially overnight. At Grade 4, the camp duration gets extended by a day. This camp is filled with fun and games and is intended for the child to enjoy the time spent with teachers and friends. Camps for Grade 5 and Grade 6 become more adventure-based, culminating of travel around the Island where the child experiences camping in the great outdoors.
