Welcome to episode 203 of The PE Umbrella podcast, the ONLY dedicated Primary PE Podcast in the world!
Joining me Under the Umbrella this week is PE coordinator based in an SEN school Adam Price. From hands-on teaching over a number of years, to writing blogs, to presenting to students, Adam really knows his stuff when it comes to inclusion and providing the best PE offering for a diverse range of needs. Although Adam teaches in a SEN school, having pupils with SEN is commonplace for many teachers in mainstream settings and is certainly something we need to be acutely aware of when planning and delivering our PE sessions. Adam shares ideas and strategies that can help us manage common barriers and help you get the best out of your PE sessions in catering for ALL pupils.
However, it is important to note that there is not a one size fits all strategy for this, and at any given time of day, day, week or month things could be different. What this discussion will do for you is give you some more tools to add to your teaching backpack so that you can test what works best for you in your setting.
Some of our talking points this week include:
– What currently excites you about Primary PE?
– What is your ideal PE lesson recipe?
– What was the worst lesson you ever taught and why?
– What does inclusion look like to you?
– What are some of your top tips for including pupils with a variety of needs? Can you share specific examples?
In and amongst all of this goodness, we detour around other related topics to make sure you get the best possible content! We even have Adam share his favourite ever warm-up game and top class-management tip.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your note pad(s) and a pen, then come and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
