Learning Outcomes

  • Develop in pupils the knowledge (Head), attitude (Heart) and skills (Hand) to pursue and enjoy a physically active and healthy lifestyle. 
  • Enable students to demonstrate individually and with others, the physical skills, practices and values to enjoy a lifetime of active, healthy living.

Teaching Approaches

Physical education is about movement therefore in Ang Mo Kio Primary School, we based our PE curriculum based on this philosophy. Movement is fundamental and essential to life, work, and play. Movement competency facilitates participation and allows individuals to derive pleasure and satisfaction from physical activities. An individual who can move proficiently has the skills and knowledge related to movement and values purposeful moving for life. Physical education, therefore, is responsible for helping students take on the responsibility of learning by providing them with the capacity to make reasoned and wise choices through a lifelong process of change.

We as Physical education teachers consciously make use of movement as the primary medium to reach and teach the whole child.

To help our pupils inculcate the habit for an active lifestyle, the AMKP PE curriculum provides a range of learning experiences to develop pupils’ overall physical development. The lower primary level focuses on the mastery of fundamental motor skills such as locomotor, non-locomotor and manipulative skills with application of movement concepts, to develop pupils’ performance in efficiency, effectiveness and versatility. Once the foundation is laid, the upper primary level extends on the mastery of discrete skills to focus on more complex combinations and sequences of movements, and skills application in more recognisable forms of activity and games.

By the end of P6, all pupils will have experienced the 7 key PE learning areas namely  Dance, Games and Sports, Gymnastics , Outdoor Education , Physical Health and Fitness, Athletics (P3 to P6), and Swimming (P4 only).

Key Programmes

1. Sports Education Programme (SEP)

 Primary 3 Inline Skating
 Primary 4Bowling 
 Primary 5Rock Climbing 
Primary 6Archery

The Sports Education Programme (SEP) is a collaborative partnership between Singapore Sports Council (SSC) and schools under the Ministry of Education (MOE). Under SEP, every school is provided with some grants to aid the pupils to take up sports programmes at a subsidised rate from an endorsed list. The SEP aims to advocate the importance of sports education, encourage sports participation in schools and increase sporting opportunities for our young learners.

 A total of 51 pupils participated actively in the P4 SEP Bowling Programme which start on 2 Feb and ended on 2 Mar 2018. There were a total of 4 sessions and each session was held at Yishun SAFRA.

From the bowling course, the Primary 4 pupils learnt about the proper swing mechanics and basic finishing stance of bowling. Most importantly, they have also displayed school values such as resilience and excellence. They were seen showing the “Never give up” attitude to master their new skills when trying to knock down the bowling pins.


For the P3 pupils, they took part in the inline skating programme from 6 April to 18 May. It was held in school with a total number of 56 participants. Even through some of them kept falling down on their buttocks repeatedly, they persisted with the practice and got better at balancing as their confidence grew by the end of the 4 weeks session.


2. Sports Carnival

Every year, the PE department organises the school-wide based event called the sports carnival whereby all P3 to P6 pupils take part in either carnival-style games or represent their class to participate in inter-class games. It is a day of celebration as pupils regardless of their abilities have the opportunity to get active and participate in physical activities. This year (2018), we injected the element of excellence through pair and scoreboard challenges in the activities. Also we would like to thank the PSG for their continual support in helping out with the sports carnival activities!

3. P3 to P6 Inter-class Competitions (After curriculum hours)

To further provide more opportunities for the pupils to be active and resilient, AMKP PE department also organised after school activities such as interclass competitions. These activities generate fun and promote a positive attitude towards continual participation in physical activities for health, fitness and enjoyment. They also provide authentic learning experiences for pupils to build their confidence and develop social skills.

For Parents

The PE department seeks the help of all parents to inculcate in our pupils the need to eat healthily and exercise regularly. Therefore here are some health tips that we would like to share with you:


Programme for Active Learning

  • PAL is a major initiative to address the need for greater emphasis on non-academic programmes for all P1 and P2 pupils. 
  • It consists of modules of activities in 4 domains namely: Sports & Games, Outdoor Education(OE), Performing Arts and Visual Arts, which are carried out within the curriculum time.
