Breaking my arm while playing tennis in year 7

I had to leave school to go to hospital. I had a cast on for 4 weeks with my arm stuck in the same position for all that time.

What happened exactly? Were detentions all you ever got for refusing to do it?

When you say "refusing to run", did you just walk it or did you skip the whole thing?

I've heard of cross country happening in some other schools but we never did anything like it at our school.
I would just walk it.


It's boring so I don't see why I should be forced to take part

-Getting picked last for pretty much every team sport for being short as hell and being assumed useless.
-Having no co-ordination and timing and as such being awful at dance (which was like 50% of our PE lessons).
-When all the rubbish dancers had to dance at the front...basically humiliation as all the popular girls made snarky and horrid comments.
-Having an asthma and panic attack in PE once because I was pushed too far, but I couldn't stop because of the **** my peers would have put me through.
-Running out of a dance lesson crying after having had a very hard week (a friend died) and I just couldn't take any bull****, especially dance anymore. I never went to a dance lesson after that...they never questioned it.

You know just the usual.

One of my most embarrassing moments of PE at school was when we was in our changing rooms, I went to the toilet and my class went out, and my teacher locked me in accidently. The class was outside in the fields. I banged on the door and a teacher let me out.
I know, it was embarrassing....

The showers. The. Showers. Paper-thin sheets that didn't extend all the way across the rows of shower heads were all that separated you from the next student along. And, as I was bullied quite heavily, I was quite the prime target during showers.

I had a period every week for two years so I could avoid this.

Doesn't surprise me that most TSR users hated P.E.

The worst thing I found about P.E other than the changing rooms was the fact a lot of the nerdy kids didn't even attempt to play the game and then cried when they got yelled at.

In year 7 they made us do forward rolls in front of the class. I couldn't do one. I cried. God, that was embarrassing...

In my experience, it wasn't the "nerds" not attempting to play the game that was the problem. To my knowledge PE was never streamed according to ability, and in my classes it was always the sporty kids basically having their own game and the several unsporty kids having little opportunity to play at all, not because they weren't trying but because the sportier kids were dominating and carrying on without them.

And because the sports changed every term, the unsporty kids might just be getting the hang of something and then it changes and they're doing something completely different, they're back to square one. And the next time they do that sport again they're starting from scratch because they haven't played it for ages. That really didn't help things along.

If you'd tried really hard to get involved in a game and then got shouted at for failing then you would probably have been a bit annoyed as well. After so much of that they just give up, through (usually) no fault of their own. PE can be one of the hardest lessons to improve if you're quite bad at it, and also the hardest to keep your failures to yourself.

I wouldn't have cared if they screwed up and tried. Instead they just stood by the goalpost and didn't even attempt to go near the ball yet got pissy when they were told to do something

We only ever did this once or twice (literally, in the whole of secondary school) and I actually did all right at it. Didn't do brilliantly but I did better than I expected, I thought I'd be out in the first few stages but I didn't get out until about half the class had as well. For me, average was pretty good.

Same. Veruccas weren't a good excuse either. Apparently, you can only get them from swimming.:rolleyes: My mum actually wrote me a letter to say I'd hurt my knee or something instead.
