    PE as in physical education. it's not fun at all, especially in winter when we're forced to go outside. if the over weight people want to lose weight, they'd go to the gym, moving around for 20 minutes twice a week is hardly going to change anything.

    PE is really fun- depends on what you do I guess. Sports are fun but athletics and gymnastics not so much

    Agree totally. Especially because in PE my class do nothing and it just wastes time, could be doing something useful in that 1 hour period.

    PE should receive more funding than STEM subjects.

    I fully agree. I think that PE should be optional, so that those who want to play sport/exercise are able to, but others who would prefer to study or revise can do that instead.

    Is like saying any other subject should be optional. That's why UK accounts for an abnormly % of overweight people

    I dont class badmington as a sport, more like a leisure run around

    to an extent yes it is a waste of time.
    I remember my p.e lessos from yr 10 onwards would spend 3/4 of the time sitting around not doing anything/watching someone else do something.
    I seriously dont understand how p.e teachers get paid the same as like english or science teachers :|

    PE isn't really classed as a facilitating subject. So no

    Hahahahha I am pretty skinny but I still enjoyed it I was really quick so I didn't really get tackled that much and I managed to take down quite big people in my year because force = mass X acceleration. My acceleration was sick m8. Also badminton is one of my favourites to play I'm too good
