“Sometimes it’s just a little whisper without outing them in front of the class because that’s when I find they want to show up and answer back”
Welcome to episode 111 of The PE Umbrella Podcast, the only primary and elementary PE podcast in the world as we talk ALL things PhysEd.
This week I am joined by Primary PE teacher Gareth Jones to talk all about his role and share some PE knowledge bombs! Gareth currently works within a cluster of 21 Primary schools in York, ensuring he has his hands full indeed. Tasked with ensuring the delivery of high-quality primary PE, he is well and truly on the front line, delivering lessons and clubs daily. During this episode we reflect on the current state of primary PE as well as sharing Gareths own teaching stories and tips.
