Physical Education

Weekly PE lessons in all key stages encourage children to understand the need for safety and working with others in a team. We aim to ensure all pupils:


§ develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

§ are physically active for sustained periods of time

§ engage in competitive sports and activities

§ lead healthy, active lives.

Termly, Riverside Primary School compete against Twydall Primary School to win the RMET Sport Shield. A team of year 3 and 4 children compete against each other at a different sport, either at Riverside Primary School or Twydall Primary School. The first sport is football (28th November), followed by benchball next term. 

Healthy School

Having a good understanding of what it means to have a healthy lifestyle is a vital part of your child's PE education. Children are taught about the importance of exercise and of eating a balanced diet. We then use our kitchen facility to teach the children about nutrition and learn to make different healthy meals and snacks.


We also offer a Change For Life Club where children are taught vital skills to enable them to live an active and healthy life style.


To help to keep the children active during the day, alongside our PE lessons we have 5-A-day. This is a 5 minute exercise routine or dance video that the children follow along to.
