Welcome to episode 165 of The PE Umbrella podcast, the ONLY dedicated Primary PE Podcast in the world!
Joining me Under the Umbrella this week, is Primary PE teacher in a SEND school, Evelyn Roberts. Evelyn was born prematurely with Cerebral Palsy, a disability that impacts her muscles and coordination, in particular making it difficult for her to walk. During this episode, Evelyn takes us on a journey through her childhood and her negative experiences of PE into ultimately playing professional sport and now teaching PE herself. She opens up about her struggles and successes and ultimately how her condition positively impacts on all of the students she teaches. Not only were my eyes opened further, but I was truly inspired.
All of the show regular questions were here this week too as we discussed:
– What currently excites you about PE?
– What misconceptions of Primary PE would you banish to room 101 given the chance?
– What is your perfect primary PE lesson recipe?
– What was the worst PE lesson you ever taught and why?
– What area of your teaching do you think you have improved on the most?
All of that plus top class-management tips, favourite warm-up games and behaviour management advice, you won’t want to miss it. Prepare to be inspired!
So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
