The primary aim of this study was to determine the circumstances of implementation and realization of Physical Education classes and basic characteristics of teacher - the subject of realization of the curriculum. An anonymous questionnaire consisting of 12 statements was applied on a sample of 203 teachers in primary schools of Split-Dalmatia, Šibenik-Knin and Zadar County. Each statement was scored on a five-point Likert scale.The final results showed that more than 33% of teachers participating in this study did not have the necessary equipment and materials, and they mostly have not used the gym for the realization of their Physical Education lessons, mostly with good reasons. They were confident about their knowledge and competencies they have acquired regarding the realization of teaching, but more than 65% of the examinees confirmed that during the demonstration they also describe the teaching theme, which is completely incorrect regarding the methodology of teaching and learning motor skills. At the same time, the results of this study lead to a conclusion that frequent polemics and discussions about the realization of Physical Education teaching in primary schools have been justified. Physical Education classes should be performed with higher quality, thus, additional education of teachers was suggested as the solution. On the other hand, proposals that this important school subject should be taught by kinesiologists with Master’s Degree (professors of Physical Education), suggested by certain kinesiologists, was also considered.
