I love PE, it's one of my favourite lessons. I agree a lot more sports should be studied in school, but skating & BMX riding should be for out of school.

I think that BMX-ing is a good idea and skateboarding but I also think that mountain biking and maybe stuff a bit like paint ball as long as the are safety rules in place, it is a good strategy game.
Michael, 13, Ipswich
I think that BMX-ing and skateboarding in PE lessons would really get kids more interested in PE.
Nathan, 12, Rugby
I think it is a good idea, PE is good but it should be more exciting.
Jamie, 8, Coatbridge
Learning skateboarding would be really cool but the teachers would have to go off and get new qualifications. This could take a while and I don't want to miss any PE lessons.
Maia, 12, Hemel Hempstead
I think that skateboarding is the greatest thing that ever happened. I always want to get away from lessons, so a bit of skating and BMX-ing, would be perfect.
Anthony, 12, Halifax
Our school needs some excitement in PE lessons rather than boring netball and hockey.
Charlotte, 13, Middlesborough
I think that it would be a good change because what we do at our school is the same sports every term.
Christian, 10, Bowes
Introducing alternative sports into PE lessons is nice to imagine, but when reality hits, it is unlikely that most schools have the equipment, resources, time or money to invest in getting teachers experienced in these subjects.
Jenny, 14, Romford
I think that skateboarding and BMX-ing is a great way to have fun and get fit but it will be extra special in school.
Jonathan, 12, Norwich
I think it is a good idea. It sometimes gets a bit boring doing the same thing all the time.
David, 11, Dundee
I think skateboarding should be introduced into schools because everyone is bored of normal PE lessons.
Ben, 13, Aylesbury
I go to an all girls school and I would really like to have other types of sport like BMX-ing but I don't think it's going to happen.
Karley, 13, Kent
I don't think that BMX-ing and skateboarding should be school sports but I do think that there should be some new ones. I just feel that they are to dangerous and there aren't enough qualified teachers to teach it properly.
Kendal, 14, Sherburn in Elmet
I would prefer to have skateboarding in the school's PE curriculum because I find school boring and when I get home I never get a chance to go out on my board because of my homework so I can do it in school instead.
Niall, 12, Haywards Heath
PE is boring! I think we should be able to do lessons such as judo and karate. That way it can help protect you too!
Sophie, 14, Crewe
I skate any way but if you did have skate and BMX in PE it would give the chance to people to try the most exciting and fun two sports in the world.
George, 11, Solihull
I think it's a good idea to do cool things in PE but I also think that boys and girls should both be allowed to do sports normally meant for the opposite sex, football and rugby for girls, and netball and lacrosse for boys.
Philippa, 12, Surrey
Everyone in our school wants to have a half pipe because nearly every one skates. I think it's a great idea but our head teacher disagrees!
Peter, 11, Farnborough
I think that skating in schools is a great idea, PE shouldn't be something that a majority of the class don't like.
Ollie, 11, London
Schools should have more PE equipment like bikes and skateboards to do instead off volleyball, netball and other boring sports.
Daniel, 10, Rochdale
I think that skating and biking should only be an extra for those who like it because lots of my friends are happy with the sports we do at the moment.
James, 13, Addlestone
I love PE lessons but it would be fairer to everyone if you could choose what sports you do.
Emily, 14, Guernsey
I think bringing skateboarding into schools would be good. I've been skateboarding for about a year and been bored of normal PE sports for ages.
Richard, 14, Datchet
Extreme sports are the big thing at the moment and schools can't ignore that forever.
Stewart, 12, Linlithgow
I think skateboarding would rule! I would like to learn how to do it.
William, 13, London
I think that introducing BMX-ing and skateboarding into PE lessons is a great idea! A lot of my friends either BMX or skate so it would be good for us to do something that we enjoy instead.
Simon, 12, Haverhill
I think that my school and all schools across the UK should give pupils the chance to do sports they want to. At the moment they make us run round a hall like a dog after a ball.
Chris, 12, Hartburn
I think that you should bring in new school sports, the old ones are fun but we are in the twenty first century. I think it's a good idea but it will never happen.
Tom, 14, Northampton
I think that skate boarding and BMX biking is a good way to get boys involved but not many girls are interested in these two sports.
Rebecca, 11, Dorchester
My dream PE lesson would be skating, BMX-ing and cool sports like that because that's what most people want to do these days.
Derek, 14, Glasgow
I love skateboarding and skating and having the opportunity to do the sports I love in school would make me look forward to my PE lessons.
Samantha, 13, Pontefract
I think skateboarding shouldn't be for PE lessons but it should be set up for lunchtime clubs.
Mark, 13, Welwyn Garden City
I think this is a great idea, it is still exercise but you enjoy it and skateboarding and BMX-ing becomes a talent.
Anthony, 12, West Monkseaton
PE should be more fun, you should be able to do things like skating and mountain biking, not just running round in a gym and playing badminton all lesson, it's boring.
Adam, 12, Brierley Hill
I think that introducing skating and roller blading into school PE lessons is a good idea as it gives pupils the chance to experience something new and take part in something that not everyone gets the chance to do.
Hannah, 14, Portsmouth
I hate PE cause the teachers are horrible and force you to do things. I would like to do some sort of PE using a bike cause it's cool.
Sarah, 11, Wakefield
I think that PE is fine as it is. There's no point in changing it, you still get exercise.
My PE lessons are tiring and boring, we just keep doing the same things again and again.
Laura, 12, Boston
I think we should be allowed to do skateboarding and BMX riding in school as long as there is always a teacher watching and as long as we all know what we are doing.
Shabnam, 12, Preston
I agree that a wider range of sports should be offered in PE and I also think girls should get to play football and basketball instead of just hockey and netball.
Rosie, 12, Norwich
You should be able to do the things you like in PE because at the end of the day, it's all a form of exercise.
