Is PE really Necessary?

You might be wondering what is all about the fuss between schools and social organizations on PE sessions. You are justified to question. The fact that we all run and engage in physical activity in one way or another should be enough for body health. Children especially are involved in vigorous activities throughout the day that they cannot afford to spend more hours at home with family other than get to bed. Typically, by the time a kindergarten kid gets to relax on a couch, he/she is truly tired. Why subject such an innocent and tender soul to more physics?

The philosophy

The word to note is ‘education.’ There is more to these sessions in schools than engaging learners in body exercise. PE planning goes deeper than engaging body muscles and joints; otherwise it would be called gymnastics. PE entails fine aspects of physical activity. Learners in school need to understand mechanics of these activities including why they engage, and how it achieves the mentioned goals in their bodies. Also, learners get to know how they can implement these techniques on their own while at home because it needs to be a regular activity.

The catch

Just like many other people in society, you may not know the connection between body exercise and mental health. Physical activity directly influences the mind. PE planning pushes for inclusion of these session school schedules as frequent as possible knowing the impact of exercise on the mind. PE focuses on achieving the same goals in schools, performance and excellence hence a better people and ultimately better society.

Physical activity, which may be as simple as jogging or three-four press-ups, is enough to relieve and refresh the mind of a learner. Focusing on concepts in class cannot be achieved by strict and compact schedules; this only deviate the mind.
