    In this thesis, I established class teacher’s opinions on the physical education. In the theoretical part, I defined the sport activity and its meaning, the meaning of sport activity for children; I focused on physical education in the primary school, its scope and planning. The teacher is also one of the important factors of the sport-educational process, therefore I also wrote some words on this theme; I also defined their role, knowledge and their improvement and the meaning of the quality sport-educational process for children. In the last chapter I briefly described some activities that are in the additional program of physical education. 225 teachers from different Slovenian primary schools cooperated at the empirical part. In the survey, I was interested in whether the physical education is a popular subject to teach among the teachers and whether the teachers classify it as a subject important for life; which contents do they like to teach and which contents they do not like to teach at physical education. I was also interested in what changes they would introduce in the curriculum for physical education and whether they carry out activities of the additional programme with the students, remedial classes and demonstration of the contents. The teachers also answered questions about the parents’ warnings about problems in physical education and the presentation of the results of the sport-educational chart and about their competences for teaching physical education and their wishes for further education. The results showed interesting findings. Physical education is, according to the teachers, the most popular subject among the students, but among the teachers themselves, it is not that popular to teach. The teachers are aware of the importance of the physical education and sport activity for the development of the children, so they place it among the three life most important school subjects. The teachers at physical education really like to teach ball games and athletics, the least favourite to teach is gymnastics. In general, the teachers are content with the physical education curriculum; most of them would change the physical education into an hour on daily basis on the school schedule. As expected, the most of the teachers do not give homework to students and they mostly do not include the students in remedial classes, since it does not seem necessary. A minute for health and an active break are positively accepted among the teachers, since they are mostly carried out during school hours, or they are of the opinion that it would be implemented no matter if the school practices it yet. The teachers talk with parents about the problems that occur at physical education as frequently as with any other problems, the results of the sport-educational chart are mostly not introduced to parents. In general, the teachers have enough competences to teach physical education and are themselves able to perform high-quality hours of physical education, but I also discovered that some teachers do not know well enough the physical education curriculum.
