Duncan, Michael; Cunningham, Anna; Eyre, Emma – European Physical Education Review, 2019
This study examined the effect of a six week combined movement and story-telling intervention on motor competence and naming vocabulary in British pre-schoolers. Using a cluster randomised design, three pre-school classes were allocated to one of a combined movement and story-telling intervention (n = 22), or a movement only (n = 25) or…

McWhannell, Nicola; Triggs, Carmel; Moss, Samantha – European Physical Education Review, 2019
Children in areas of low socioeconomic status might face barriers to physical activity during school playtime in comparison to their high socioeconomic status counterparts. However, limited research within the area currently prevents evidence-based interventions from being targeted appropriately. This exploratory study aimed to assess and compare…

Kokkonen, Juha; Yli-Piipari, Sami; Kokkonen, Marja; Quay, John – European Physical Education Review, 2019
This study investigated the effectiveness of a creative physical education (CPE) intervention on students' perceptions of motivational climate in physical education (PE), leisure-time physical activity (PA) motivation, and overall PA. A sample of 382 fourth to sixth grade students (M[subscript age] = 10.87[0.93]) from two elementary schools were…

Holt, Anne-Didde; Smedegaard, Søren; Pawlowski, Charlotte Skau; Skovgaard, Thomas; Christiansen, Lars Breum – European Physical Education Review, 2019
Physical activity at school can be beneficial to children's psychosocial well-being. To realise this potential, a school environment that supports physical activity is crucial. Self-Determination Theory provides the basis for one approach, namely to focus on pupils' need to feel competent, autonomous and related. The purpose of this study was to…

Werkhoven, Thea; Cotton, Wayne; Dudley, Dean – European Physical Education Review, 2018
Educational institutions have been identified as ideal locations to implement health promotion strategies that aim to prevent and treat youth obesity. However, the tertiary training of future health promoters currently lacks health and nutrition instruction. This study sought to investigate attitudes towards youth obesity and perceptions of the…

André, Mauro; Hastie, Peter – European Physical Education Review, 2018
A student-designed games (SDG) teaching unit could be described as the process in which students create, organise, practice and refine their own games within certain limits established by the teacher. This study compared how two different teaching approaches had an impact on students and their teacher. The researcher taught two SDG units to junior…

Kerner, Charlotte; Haerens, Leen; Kirk, David – European Physical Education Review, 2018
Body image disturbance in children and adolescents has negative implications for psychological and physical well-being. To positively impact well-being, it is important to explore factors that influence body image and to identify strategies that can be used to reduce body image disturbance. The school curriculum can play a significant role in…

Adolescent boys living in disadvantaged communities are considered a vulnerable group at risk for developing obesity and associated health problems, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and type-2 diabetes. While short-term health promotion programmes often produce effective results during the implementation of the intervention, according…

Leung, Ka-Man; Chung, Pak-Kwong; Kim, Seungmo – European Physical Education Review, 2017
This study (a) presented a structural model for examining how parents' perceptions of their children's competence, exercise benefits, exercise barriers and neighbourhood safety influenced parental support and their children's physical activity (PA) and (b) examined the mediating effect of parental support on children's PA. Parents of 478 children…

Wallhead, Tristan; Dyson, Ben – European Physical Education Review, 2017
The purpose of this study was to use the Joint Action Studies in Didactics (JASD) to understand how teachers' and students' interactions co-construct knowledge during Cooperative Learning (CL). The basis of CL is that students learn with and from each other through a structured interdependent relationship. A case study approach was used to examine…

Abós, Ángel; Sevil, Javier; Julián, José Antonio; Abarca-Sos, Alberto; García-González, Luis – European Physical Education Review, 2017
Grounded in self-determination theory and achievement goal theory, this quasi-experimental study evaluated the effectiveness of a teaching intervention programme to improve predisposition towards physical education based on developing a task-oriented motivational climate and supporting basic psychological needs. The final sample consisted of 35…
