This report is a qualitative interview study which central content enlightens how movement and sports effects children’s performance in school. With the help of five different teachers in three different schools questions like; how does movement effect the performance of children in school? Have been answered.
Lots of research and litterateur shows that children is doing better physical and mental, the concentration level is improved and the performance in school is better when exposed to more movement, also there are less conflicts and the students gets better motor skills.
Comparison with the ”Bunkefloproject” has been done, which was a project in the south of Sweden where they let the children have physical education every day and then they examined how this effected their performance in school. With this basis this report will examine the teachers view on the subject.
The result shows that the teachers think that there should be more movement in the daily schedule for the children because they seam to be more happy and concentrates better after movement. Though they don’t believe that they have to have physical education in the schedule as long as movement is integrated in the normal activities. The teachers think that it should not be left to the teacher to decide when to move, the schedule should be designed for it so the teachers interest doesn’t decide whether the children gets movement or not.
