We assume that the I st grade students somato-functional indicators evaluation will observe their inappropriate age-related physical development and will recommend compulsory practice of physical education activities within optional and extracurricular classes. The study undertaken following methods were used for research: observation pedagogical method tests, statistical and mathematical methods of processing and interpretation of data.Expected results from this study are even more important as children's health is a matter of public interest and concern specialized international institutions and medical research to the younger generation. The data obtained will be implemented at the school and available to those who wish to consult the bibliography and published materials.In a study undertaken we conclude we can say that consolidation motion skills and the primary school is performed simultaneously with performing exercises of physical development, as well as through a drive system specially developed that must be present in lesson Physical Education.
