Abstract

According to a lot of people, movement contributes with a whole lot of positive things such as, learning, a better bodyknowledge, fellowship and koncentration. Movement has also proved to support many things regarding childrens development. According to Gun Sandborg-Holmdahl who is a teacher in pedagogic and Birgitta Stening who is an physical education teacher, movement and games commits many of the human senses wich contributes childrens ability to use their amagination and also spontanity. Games and movements have also shown to have good effects when it comes to childrens increased feeling to learn things. I have in this study, studied the South African school and their wiew on movement in school. Is movement activities commonly in their teaching and how much knowledge do they have about movement and it’s effect on, for example, the learning ability. I interviewed four teachers, on a school located in Cradock, in the Western Cape province. The students go from grade five to grade seven. All teachers has several years experience of teaching. The result shows that all teachers think that movement is improtant, for example with the purpose to cheer up the childrenms mind. The subject physical-education does not exist anymore, when the new curriculum came there was no more room left for physical-education as a subject says one of the teacher. Three of the teachers think that the children, in spite of the lack of physical-education as a subject in school, the children move enough they believe. The fourth teacher tough, believes that the students moves a lot more before the new curriculum came. Three of the teachers believe that boys move more than girls do, as well in school as in their sparetime. One of the teachers believes that this can mean that boys get bigger possibilities to participate in sport activities in comparacy to girls who must help out more with the domestic duties. The learners play a lot of games and they play football during the 30 minutes break that they have during the schoolday.
