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 Podcast, I reflect on the importance of celebrating small wins to help contribute towards positive classroom management and progress. If harnessed correctly and performed consistently, this is the leading factor driving motivation in children!

I share real life working examples that have seen an increase in positive behaviour by being proactive and 'catching the good' as opposed to being reactive and 'punishing the bad'. Follow some of my suggestions and stay consistent to help your own PE classroom management!
