Abstract

The study purpose was to determine the dynamics of motor and functional fitness of 4th-5th grade boys of a rural underfilled school during the school year.

Materials and methods. The study participants were boys of 4th grade (n = 9) and 5th grade (n = 5). During parent-teacher meetings, the children and their parents were informed about all the features of the study and gave their consent to participate in the experiment. The study used the following research methods: analysis of scientific and methodological literature, pedagogical testing, and methods of mathematical statistics for processing research results.

Results. On average, the 4th grade boys’ results are 10.8 times better in push-ups (p < 0.05); 5.3 times better in pull-ups (p < 0.05); 15.3 s better in bent-arm hang (p < 0.05). By the results of other motor tests, the differences between average values are statistically non-significant (p > 0.05).

Conclusions. The general level of the pupils’ functional and motor fitness is sufficient. There are statistically significant differences between the 4th and 5th grade boys in push-ups, pull-ups, bent-arm hang, Stange test, Serkin test (p < 0.05). By the results of other tests, the differences between average values are statistically non-significant (p > 0.05).
