While exercising, there is a purposeful impact on the complex of body natural properties, which belongs to physical qualities of a person. Affecting physical qualities, under certain conditions, achieve a significant change of the level and direction of their development. In this regard, the aim of the research paper is to analyse the developed and scientifically grounded  methods of circuit  training  for  optimization of  Physical Education lessons for  primary school children.  The Purpose of the Study to elaborate and scientifically substantiate the training methods optimization of Physical Education lessons for primary school children. Research Organization, based on the fact, that 107 pupils of 9th–10th forms took part at the experiment. They were divided into experimental and control groups (experimental groups include 27 boys and 26 girls; control groups –28 boys and 26 girls). The experiment was attended by 9–10 year-old boys and girls that were included to the main medical group. Results.The chosen tests were informative in order to the dynamics detection of the developed methods and gave a positive growth for both groups (p <0,05; p <0,01). But the best result was shown by the experimental group. Due to the fact that during the methodology construction, not only the sensitive development, but also those aspects that would motivate the children before classes, were taken into consideration. Conclusions. Data, obtained during the methodology implementation of the circuit training, proved the effectiveness of our methods, that used during the school year as a modernized tool for increasing the level of physical preparedness of primary school children.
