That's one of the sports I wasn't allowed to do because it was a 'girls sport'. :x

Hockey is quite a vicious sport, maybe you should try it one time.

Sport has absolutely no place in an academic curriculum. If the government's goal is fitter children then the correct way to achieve this is by funding after-school sports clubs, and sports facilities at youth centres; subsidise the programmes to the point where they are free, or thereabouts, and by all means encourage attendence at all levels in the child's own time. But compulsory education proper should hold the goal of learning as its exclusive domain. School football should form no more a part of a child's lessons than University rowing does of a student's lectures, or the laboratory badminton team does a graduate's doctoral research.

Do your worst, you PE-loving freaks. :dread:

Quality, primary was a mix of indoor ball games, apparatus/gym stuff and dance things. We played footy outside at least an hour a day too

Secondary was football/rugby/tennis/cricket/running outside, and again was quality.

Easily my favorite lesson, and most if not all of the teachers were nice people

I fully believe it should be part of the curriculum. It is an easy way to sort out the fatties, and improve fitness of the young population. It is a great way to break up the learning throughout the day, and I think it's a good way of relieving stress and helping with retaining knowledge.

Hockey is brutal.

I liked a few lessons in P.E. I tended to be "sick" for most of them though. Had no interest in playing Rugby or gymnastics. Did football when that rolled around, trampolining was awesome too. Our teacher for that was some Great Britain Olympian or something back in the day. Cross country was horrific, but luckily our field was joined on to woodland. So we got to a certain point we just pissed off into the woods and just walked around.

There was a weird "adventure" activity they tried to introduce. Each class in year 8 I think so...11/12 years old had to crawl through the brook by the school. Full of gooseberry fool and dead mice and just about every gross thing you can think of. A bunch of kids got sick. Luckily our class was scheduled to be the last to do it, but it got cancelled :mrgreen: Not that I would have done it anyway.

The teachers were on the whole complete dickheads though, and we had the classic lesbian teacher too.

I disagree, while I do not like sport particularly, I think the physical development of a child should be as important as their mental development as both impact on later quality of life.

In Secondary school we had Games twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. And half the year had PE in the morning once a week whilst the others did Meno and we swapped every half term.

In Games the main sports were Rugby in Winter, Hockey in Spring and Cricket in Summer. I wasn't very good so I got put into something called potted sports. In Year 7 & 8 we did the standard stuff 1 day a week but by ourselves at an easier pace and then the other day we did other activities, such as once we did cross country, koits, and other sports to try and improve general fitness, hand eye cordination, team work and spacial awareness. Looking back at it it was quite good and we enjoyed it most of the time.

We played this game occasionally that we all loved called murder ball. Basically the set up was 2 teams 3 medicine balls and 2 crash mats. The idea was to get all 3 medicine balls onto your crash mat. But the other team could take them. SO you had to lye on top of the balls on your mat to stop the other team getting your balls, whilst the other team would try to pry the ball off you.

Then in year 9 we got to do a rotation of sports and we changed every half term. So there was swimming, fencing, badminton, squash, table tennis, tennis, cross country, shooting, rowing and perhaps a few more. Then in about year 10/11 you could have some say into what you wanted to do, before in sixth from from year you got to outright chose.

I did fencing from year 11 on wards, and I got reasonably good, but didn't really continue it at university. I asked to play Rugby again in Year 13 but they wouldn't let me. I wish I tried a bit harder/ had more interest in some of the main stream sports because I quite like Rugby now.

We then had the yearly cross country which I finished 3rd from last in, in year 11 and then did it again in year 13, praticed really hard and picked up some points for our house by coming about midfield which was nice. Then we had sports day every year, but I was too gooseberry fool at everything, though the older I got the less of chore it was to go watch (it was on a Saturday and we had to go) and the more interesting it became. I might try and go back this year to watch it.

I'm not sure if you're trolling, normally you have sane opinions.

School should be about personal development, sports and looking after your body are part of that. Education should be as much as bout teaching kids to 'want' to learn as the learning itself. Likewise, PE should be encouraging kids to 'want' to be fit.

There's too much "Be comfortable with who you are" bullshit floating around. No you absolutely should not be comfortable being a lard arse, just as much as ignorance should not be celebrated.

I also disagree. With that attitude you can get rid of all personal improvement lessons such as Meno, PSHE and just stop dropping arts subjects.

PE was just that, physical exercise 2x45 minutes a week.

If you wanted to learn a sport, you joined a club. Schools aren't really connected to sport at all up here.

We hardly ever played football or did any skiing (the two most popular) as that wasn't the point of PE. The point was the exercise. And obviously, skiing costs money, and so was hard to arrange when school had to be free (which incidentally made school trips near impossible).

Problem is, you get put into a set, and then forced to do a certain sport. There's no choice (or at least there wasn't when I was at school). While a lot of kids might not have a problem doing rugby and football every week, they should at least offer some alternatives. Surely some physical activity/a wider set of options is better than kids skiving, faking illness, not trying at all, etc.

For real? That's awesome. If I ever decide to be a teacher, I'd start a caving club.

We didn't have a school football team, or skiing team, or whatever.

People joined football clubs, handball clubs, skiing clubs, rowing clubs etc. instead. I can't imagine it any other way.

P.E in my school was pretty shite. I liked when we got to play basketball, hockey, and badminton. Playing football was gooseberry fool since there were loads of neds in my year who took it too seriously.

I seem to remember most classes being actual garbage though. Like playing rounders on the least flat peice of land around. Then there were those lessons where it just seemed like you done a few laps around the gym hall, done uninspiring stretches and not much else. :lol: It was so boring a lot of the time that the more appealing option for us was to "forget" our trainers and just do the punishment excercise for not bringing them.

Anyone can surely see that there are myriad things a child ought to do that are not mandated through the national curriculum, and from this we must conclude that school is absolutely not about creating a well-rounded child: it is the role of the parent to ensure these character-building tasks are accomplished. School is about academic learning and the subjects taught should be the modern descendents of the Greek trivium, the mediaeval quadrivium, and the Renaissance scholars' expansions of those subjects: the modern artes liberales. Mathematics, the Sciences, Art in all its forms (but perhaps most importantly Literature); these things are different to and stand necessarily apart from, well, throwing a rugby ball around.

I'm not saying it's not important for children to be fit and healthy. And I'm not saying schools cannot support that where appropriate; indeed, Human Biology should rather plainly and obviously form an essential and core part of any Science syllabus (and as I recall it already does). But sports clubs are ideal after-school and weekend activities and that's where they should reside.
