Welcome to episode 185 of The PE Umbrella podcast, the ONLY dedicated Primary PE Podcast in the world!
Joining me Under the Umbrella this week are former secondary PE teachers, members of The FA PE Unit and now PE consultants for Beyond the Physical, Paul Quinn & Steve Waide. As is often the case, double the guests equal twice as many knowledge bombs, so you’re going to need a very large note pad this week!
During this episode, we learn more about what makes both Paul and Steve tick, understanding more about their philosophies towards teaching PE at the primary level. They are both passionate about changing the perceptions of what PE is and highlighting the important role it plays in developing the whole child, preparing them for whatever life throws their way. In all honesty, we could have spoken for hours and I’m certain the door is ajar for a second recording somewhere down the line. With that said, we still covered many important topics and raised points that you’re sure to reflect on, consider and possibly even try out! They include:
– What currently excites you about PE?
– What misconceptions of Primary PE would you banish to room 101 given the chance?
– What is your ideal primary PE lesson recipe?
– How can we factor in developing the ‘whole child’ in our lessons?
– What was the worst PE lesson you ever taught and why?
All of that plus top class-management tips, favourite warm-up games and several other tangents that we veer off down, there is absolutely something for you to take away!
So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
