Abstract: The lack of attention and concentration in the classroom is evidence accepted by most teachers. The purpose of this research is to quantify and verify that the BAPNE body percussion method is effective in increasing the selective attention of students in the 3rd grade of Primary Education. This project has been carried out with a group of n=67 children aged between eight and nine years divided into control and experimental groups and coming from two public centers in the Valencian town of Buñol (Spain). We have intervened with the experimental group for 25 weeks twice a week in fifty-minute sessions and applying a protocol of activities called Bodypercussion-Teaching Method. The control group did not carry out the BAPNE neuromotricity program and continued with the same routines without making any change in the development of its teaching programming. A basic quasi-experimental design has been used with measures before and after the application of the method and a mixed statistical analysis (inter-intra subjects) comparing the data obtained in pre-test and post-test between the control and experimental groups and between the students of the experimental group. The 4th edition of the Brickenkamp and Seisdedos "d2" concentration and selective attention test (2012) published by TEA editions were used to measure the attentional performance of students. The results obtained after data analysis revealed a statistically significant improvement in selective attention and concentration.
