PE Curriculum

Physical Education (PE) is an important component in our school’s curriculum. With the implementation of the new PE syllabus in 2014, the school lays a strong foundation for a lifelong pursuit of a physically active and healthy lifestyle. It will create more opportunities for students to participate in recreational sports competitions. It will also make use of the PE settings to help our students develop their characters and values. With the inclusion of Outdoor Education in PE, students will get to understand more about the environment as they learn to navigate, assess risks and make decisions about their own safety, while enjoying the outdoors.

    1. Innovative Games

A 10-week programme which allows the Primary 6 pupils to showcase their creativity and critical thinking skills. Pupils will come up with an original game of their own, tapping on the game concepts/skills which they have acquired throughout the 6 years in Si Ling Primary. They will decide on the game rules, conduct dry-runs and modify the games to ensure safety, fun factor and fair play. The pupils will also get to work on their ICT and communication skills as they present their game in a PowerPoint presentation.

    2.   Video Analysis 

Pupils are exposed to the use of iPads for video analysis during PE lessons. Slow motion replay of movement is used to focus on correct techniques and also game play concepts such as space awareness. Peer feedback can be done with the videos to promote effective communication and teamwork as they encourage each other to strive for excellence.

    3. Sport Education

Pupils take turns to be the team manager/coach of their teams while learning a new sport. Instructions will only be given to the team manager, and they will be the ones guiding and coaching their peers. This creates a platform for every pupil to take up leadership roles and the authentic setting helps put teamwork in action.
