“It gives you the ability to respond to children’s needs more effectively. Children learn in vastly different ways, at vastly different paces and you can’t expect all children to come along at the pace you want or what you learned at”
Welcome to episode 133 of The PE Umbrella podcast!
Joining me Under the Umbrella this week is Rich Allman. Rich is THE guy when it comes to Primary PE. I spent a long time working around North Yorkshire and kept hearing his name. “You have to speak with Rich” or “He is the best Primary PE teacher around”, were phrases I regularly heard. I simply had to connect with him. Rewind to May 2019 and at long last, I met Rich in person at the Active Schools Conference in Leeds. Safe to say he didn’t disappoint and we had a great connection. He agreed to appear on the show and I’m delighted to finally be bringing you our chat for episode 133.
During this episode, Rich describes himself as a teacher in 3 words only, he gives us tips for maximising a small teaching space, he tells us all about Physically Active Learning and provides us with a recipe for a perfect Primary PE Lesson!
Not only that, but he even takes the time to talk us through his top class-management tip, favourite warm-up and the worst lesson that he ever taught! You will understand after only a few minutes that Rich is the real deal, so you best get that note pad and pen handy!
Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
