The PE Umbrella | Podcasting ALL things Primary Physical Education

Ryan Ellis here, the founder and host of the PE Umbrella, a Primary Physical Education podcast that discusses all things PE. Interviewing inspiring practitioners from the primary education sector, I will be sharing the latest in excellent practice and discussing what makes PE and Sport such an important tool to engage and enhance the learning of children (across the curriculum) so they are ready to leave school with a solid platform to lead a healthy lifestyle and enjoy lifelong physical activity! I will share insights into what makes the top practitioners of today tick, asking about their favourite PE resources, what activities are a must have in the locker for any teacher and success stories about WHAT REALLY WORKS! All in all, the PE Umbrella is about inspiring YOU in YOUR own teaching practice and providing you with the tools, ideas and resources to take ACTION! So come and join me under the PE Umbrella!

In this episode of The PE Umbrella, I am joined by Rob Wilkinson.  Rob is the Director of 'Moving Matters', a London based company who are responsible for delivering high quality PE to over 40 primary schools across the city.  As well as sharing his top tips, advice and resources, we talk about the inspiration behind Moving Matters through research conducted in a document named 'Designed to Move'.  This document holds stark truths about the possible future pathways for our children if we don't act on the current 'inactivity' crisis now.  Moving really does Matter.  So what are you waiting for?  I'll see you all 'Under the Umbrella'

Today, I bring you a truly wonderful activity called Hula Hut Throwdown.  Inspired by Ben Landers @thepespecialist, I have adapted his amazing game and created a variation that is accessible for most primary schools, but still keeps all of the excitement, engagement and inspiration of the original!  The true beauty of this game is how inclusive it really is.  Centring around a variety of 'roles' in a team, children of all ages can compete together and each play a part towards their teams success.  So come and join me 'Under the Umbrella' to listen, and head over to www.peumbrella.com to download the FREE PDF.
