Fysisk aktivitet: två skolor, två arbetssätt, en rektor
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this study is to examine how two different primary schools with the same school management district work with daily physical activity. We have chosen to conduct our investigation based on interviews. Through the interviews, we can highlight the teacher´s and principal´s interpretations of the concept regarding physical activity and find out the school´s arguments and working methods for pupil´s physical activity. These two schools work with physical activity in two different ways and the study describes the teacher´s and principal's choice of approach. Since our training is directed towards the younger ages, school years 1-3, we chose to interview teachers who work in these classes. It is also at a young age that teachers can influence pupil´s to adopt a healthy life style. Our results show that the individual teacher's own attitude can be reflected in the lesson planning. The teacher´s we interviewed felt that the breaks and activities encouraged students to be physically active. Trends we saw in the collection of our empirical data are that teacher´s want to be able to plan more physical activity but that they feel the pressure for all pupil´s to achieve the learning outcomes. Our results show that there might be a concern among teacher´s about the concept of physical activity and what it means.
