The purpose of the research, performed during the school year 2015 – 2016, was to observe the role of movement games during the PE class, carried out with primary school pupils. The aim of the present paper is to present the way in which we influenced the coordination skill manifestation indicators so that they are suited to the pupils’ age possibilities. The games were combined and we used two games during each practical PE class. In order to achieve this, we changed the working method at the structure level of the lesson. Thus, in the second part of the lesson, which includes types of walking and running in order to engage the body in the effort, we used movement games. As an assessment test, we used the trial “Throw at a vertical target”. This trial tests the coordination skill (the dexterity) within the school assessment system. The results obtained in the trials were statistically processed by means of the SPSS 23.0 program. The results indicated a significant progress for the group of girls and an insignificant progress for the groups of boys.
