Welcome to episode 166 of The PE Umbrella podcast, the ONLY dedicated Primary PE Podcast in the world!
Joining me Under the Umbrella this week, is former assistant headteacher, head of PE and now Early Years course leader at Leeds Beckett University, Kate Bancroft. Our main theme/focus for this episode was on Kate’s recent research project on the experiences of transgender children in Physical Education and Sport and the implications that this has for us as practitioners. It was an eye-opening and important discussion to have, particularly as it allowed me to reflect on my experience of having a transgender student only last year in my year 5 class. Not only do we dive deep here, but all of the show regular questions were here this week too as we quizzed Kate on her PE teaching past:
– 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?
So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
