Welcome to episode 152 of The PE Umbrella podcast, the ONLY dedicated Primary PE Podcast in the world!
Joining me Under the Umbrella this week is primary school PE teacher, lead and now 3-time guest of The PE Umbrella Podcast, Ryan Forwood!
This week we take a break from the usual podcast format as we are currently in the midst of unprecedented times with the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19. Every industry imaginable is experiencing turbulent times, not least the education sector, with many students now facing an uncertain future and not knowing when they will next be able to attend school for an education. Teachers have been asked to create E-learning and work packets for home and are working tirelessly to do so. But what of Physical Education? It seems impossible to replicate a traditional school PE lesson in any way, shape or form from home, especially when we consider a large part of the social element is completely out of bounds. Should we just replace PE with PA at home for the time being and call it a day?
During this episode, Ryan and I talk about the current crisis and what PE at home could/should or even can look like. We share ideas and resources that are easy to use at home, regardless of size or equipment available so you can try to maintain some form of Physical Education while we beat this epidemic and try to return to normality!
I talk about my home challenge pack during this episode. You can access it for yourself by clicking on the button below. Print and use at your leisure while you are off work/isolating with your children and keep building their PE Umbrellas!
So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
