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.

5-A-Day

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.
