Motor and sports education supports a fundamental element in the educational growth of each child, and guarantees the acquisition of motor and pedagogical-relational skills, essential for an effective social integration of children in the surrounding environment. Therefore, school should be the main place where these skills are learned, especially at primary level; in this regard, this research contribution aims at evaluating the progresses of a sample class, which is given an experimental motor and sports design in order to obtain a pedagogical progress. The pursued outcomes are proposed both as a starting point for future scientific research in the educational field, and as a valid support for requesting pedagogical proposals from the decision makers of the education and training system.
