“When going from one school to the next, they can be two minutes away and the difference is huge!”
Welcome to episode 131 of The PE Umbrella podcast, the only Primary PE podcast in the world, as we talk ALL things Primary Physical Education!
In this episode, we discuss the current state of Primary School PE and if the Sports Premium has been well spent or money down the drain. We also have the opportunity to correct misconceptions and put to bed the differences between ‘PE’ and ‘Sport’, reflecting on Ricky’s time coaching in schools. We then take a deep dive into Fitter Future, and talk about how it could be used to activate your classroom and embed more Physical Activity into your school days before probing questions about Challenge Sport and Education and what Ricky believes sets them apart from the rest! How do they portray ‘innovative’ and ‘creative’ approaches in their lessons, and more importantly, how do they assess?
Lastly, but most certainly not least, Ricky takes the time to talk us through his top class-management tip, favourite warm-up activity for children and shares with us the worst lesson he has ever taught!
So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
