The article contains the description of the bases and starting points of primary physical
education and sports day in Slovenia and other European countries. It presents the motivational point
of view of the students at the implementation of distance learning for a sports day. There is a graphic
display of the results of an online survey that was carried out among teachers and students of Komen
primary school, branch of Štanjel. Fifty students from the 1st to 6th grade and 7 teachers took part in
the survey. The purpose of the article is the research about what influences the motivation of students
in distance learning. From the collected data it was found out that the ICT and interdisciplinary connection
have played the most important role in the implementation of the sports day. The answers of the
teachers show that besides the ICT devices, the weather, the family and interdisciplinary connections
are the main motivators for the children. The students were very motivated at the implementation of the
distance sports day. The teachers, as well as students, have found advantages and disadvantages in the
organization of a distance sports day.
