Abstract In order to answer the problem statement: Why does the new primary school reform’s demand on 45 minutes daily physical activity seem to benefit the development of learning, and which strengths and challenges does the parties think the initiative regarding physical activity has led to, we found it significant to interview several parties on XX primary school where students, class teacher and deputy manager were all interviewed. By interviewing the several parties we were able to achieve the proper insight needed in order to achieve a wider perspective on the daily school life after the implementation of the new primary school reform. From the be-ginning of the project our prior understandings have affected our approach in the configura-tion of the project. Since most of our prior understanding is regarded to the concept of learn-ing, it was clear that the notion of learning was the fulcrum of our project. Our understanding of the notion of learning contains different aspects and dimensions, which increases the com-plexity of the concept. It seems that the theoretician and researcher Knud Illeris share the same grasp of the notion of learning, which is why we have chosen his theory of learning as the fundamental theoretical basis of the project. We found that parts of Knud Illeris’ theory about the complexity of the notion of learning seems to be confirmed in the research of our projects empiricism which is why the XX primary school seem to share the same understand-ing of the concept of learning. The students articulate that physical activity improves their motivation to learn, which is why they request more physical activity during school hours. At this point the physical activity lie as a break instead of lying within the regular lessons, which from the perspective of the deputy manager is suppose to be incorporated in the mindset and way of teaching in the future. According to the deputy manager, a successful implementation of daily physical activity requires proper training of the teachers in the primary school in or-der for them to handle the challenges that occurs as a result of the demand of 45 minutes of daily physical activity in the primary schools. Finally we have found that all parties from the XX primary school finds that physical activity has a beneficial effect on the learning skills of the students at the XX primary school and furthermore improves their motivation to learn during school. It seems that the issue with the implementation of physical activity lies within the lack of training of the teachers, than it lies within the complexity of the notion of learning.
