Abstract [en]

The purpose with this study was to see the relation between gymnastic pause and concentration to find out the students in a first grade experiences and thoughts about gymnastic pauses in the classroom. I have made a qualitative study to fulfill my purpose, I have observed students before and after the gymnastic pauses, carried through gymnastic pauses with the pupils and interviewed pupils in group.

Previous research shows that the good working atmosphere and concentration has improved when pupils have had gymnastic pauses but it is difficult to say how it looks in the long term when the research doesn’t show that.

In my study, it appears that the gymnastic pauses make it calmer in the classroom. Some of the pupils believe that they have had a better ability to concentrate after the gymnastic pauses while some pupils believe that they have not had a better ability to concentrate. Some pupils say it's good to get a break to carry on with the schoolwork during the entire lesson. Some pupils say they find it hard to be interrupted during their work.

Something that no previous research shows is the part of pupils who doesn’t think that gymnastic pauses are a good and workable thing. There are pupils who are more disturbed by the gymnastic pauses and have difficulty to carry on with the schoolwork they should do after being interrupted for gymnastic pauses as my results show. Ericsson (2006) writes that children need adult assistance to get back to theirs concentration after being interrupted by something. I think this is important to consider as a teacher.
