Abstract: The author analyzed the current classification of physical education teaching objectives in elementary and middle schools in China, and put forward the following opinions: the classification of such objectives as “perception, skill, affection” were not made specifically for the physical education curriculum; such classification was lacking in objectives for promoting student’s body development, not in conformity with the basic nature and value of the physical education curriculum in China, not applicable to the establishment of physical education teaching objectives; the classi-fication of such objectives as “knowledge and skill, stamina, affection” is more in conformity with the nature and char-acteristics of the physical education curriculum. Having summarized and modified these objectives, the author derived a clearer classification of objectives for physical education practice teaching: skill objective for promoting movement development; stamina objective for promoting body development; affection objective for promoting spirit development. The three classes of objectives are interrelated, interdependent and indispensable.
