Are Children being scared off from PE watch

    I hated the days where I was forced to do PE. Primary school PE was alright, but then Secondary school PE was vile.

    All my teachers would prefer the "olympic" type of students and put them in a separate group from the rest, which just demotivates people.

    I hated PE because it was always freezing and I have absolutely no interest in team sports (still don’t). Plus I used to survive on like 500 calories a day during secondary school (not anorexic just had no idea about nutrition) so had zero energy. I guess none of that was the teachers fault, but no effort was made to make it accessible to all types of abilities. You were just expected to be able to play hockey/netball/tennis or go for a 2 mile cross country run.

    Once we got the option to do some different sorts of things - dance, yoga, fencing, swimming etc I got more into it.
