Abstract [en]

“Physical activities” is a current subject in Swedish nursery schools. I therefore wanted to study how teachers in other countries work with it. To collect the material, I went to a nursery school in the South of England where I did qualitative interviews with the pedagogues, to get their view on the importance of physical activities for the children´s personal development. I also observed in nursery school to get all the knowledge I needed for this work. The result showed that working with physical activities is something the teachers do for different reasons. One reason is to strengthen the social interactions between the children and the other reason is for the health benefits that physical activity gives. The activities the pedagogues did with the children was mostly outdoors, both through controlled and free games, and once a week they also had indoor dance classes.
