    If you replace sport with exercise it's a nice ideal tbh. Where exercise can be just walking somewhere

    Brilliant, 2 hours a day to go for a smoke at the back of the field?

    Is what I'd have said when I were 16.

    I can tell you were the sort to fake notes from your mum to get out of P.E

    This country is one of the fattest in the world we need to change our booze and junk food culture going for a walk does sweet **** all kids are supposed to be bursting with energy running around all the time a walk will do nothing and getting children into sports they like will make them more likely try to avoid putting junk in their bodies and focus on staying fit. Going for a walk will do nothing other than bore 95% of children

    Walking is great for you, don't be ridiculous. Sport is a good way to get young people interested in being physical active but I tell you if you walk 2 hours a day you'll be fit.

    That's a tricky one actually. Mostly the field was sold because the school had shut, a few were strips of land (not the whole field) and others were sold and leased back so they were improved and used by other people to the school.

    Surely this matter doesn't concern someone from Scotland. :rolleyes: Scotland run their own education system.

    Reduce the number of drama and music lessons (to 50 minutes each a fortnight), they were a complete waste of time when I was in secondary school and I achieved nothing from them.

    Death to the Tories! :rant: :rant:
    This whole thing has cropped up with a crass Cameron critical comment, now latched on to Lord Nobody of Nowhere, about the number of British medal winners who went to other than State schools and how disgraceful that is.

    Surely, the "disgraceful" aspect, given that the vast majority of the UK's youth receive their education at State schools, is how those schools can fail their charges so utterly - under 13 years of a Labour run education system no less - and not just in respect of their sporting prowess, whilst a tiny proportion of the country's schools can corner the market for excellence and attainment.

    And what do they get for it - blistering criticism from social engineers who seem to think that the last thing that should be encouraged is competitiveness based upon ability.

    It just goes to show how the Socialist inspired "everyone must be winners" concept has merely achieved a greater number of total losers than we have ever known before.

    I think this should be an issue of quality over quantity.

    At my school for example, we would try to get away with doing as little as possible in PE (rounders was a particular favourite as we could 'field' and actually just stand there doing nothing), also, nothing was done to sort out those who always 'forgot' their kit (the kind of people who were carted of to a classroom to hide when ofsted would come). Maybe teachers need to be more engaging or more needs to be done to ensure kids actually get involved during the allocated time.

    Also, 2 hours a day is a bit excessive, especially when other areas of learning would suffer as a result.

    Sport is a form of exercise. But the school curriculum is primarily focused on targets and results. It doesn't necessarily want healthy pupils, it wants the best player, or the next athlete. I think it would be good to get children interested in physical exercise like jogging, light weightraining, martial arts, cycling, etc, not because they are sport related but because they are physical activities with which they can get fitter, healthier and stronger and which will see their bodies through old age.
