    Abstract

    In this paper, we studied physical/sporting activities of elementary school students in grades 4 and 5 and how these are connected with their health and their attitude towards school. Our research questions were: • How are physical/sporting activities of students connected with their experience of health? • How are physical/sporting activities of students connected with their attitude towards school? • How are the assessed health of students and the sedentary behaviour of students connected? Research was conducted with a quantitative approach, while the research method was causal non-experimental. The research involved 205 elementary school students in grades 4 and 5. The sample was non-random and opportunistic. The students completed a survey that included close-ended questions. In some questions, students market to what degree they agree or disagree with the statement given, in line with the Likert scale. We used the following statistical procedures: frequency and percentage distribution, chi-square test of independence, and Pearson correlation coefficient. The results of the research showed the following: • Students who are more physically active are less tired in school, more focused and motivated for school work, and, conversely, students who are less physically active in school and with friends are thus more tired and less motivated for work; • Although children are physically active in a club or with their families, they still have sleep problems; • Students who are less physically active in their free time still have a high opinion of school, and the results do not show a clear positive or negative impact on their attitude towards school; • Although students spend a great deal of time in a sedentary position, they assess their health as good.
