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!

Hello and Welcome to episode 67 of The PE Umbrella Podcast. This week, you have me all to yourself as I reflect and preview some changes that are coming to the podcast interviews in the coming months, testing out some of the content on myself first. I am a firm believer of: "Live What You Preach" During this episode I talk about my mind and body in particular, and how I keep myself fulfilled and in the best state of mind to teach the children I work with without hitting burnout. After all... "you can't serve others from an empty vessel" So come and join me Under the Umbrella and see how i try to keep my own vessel firmly afloat!

Welcome to The PE Umbrella Podcast, Episode 66. In this reflection episode, I discuss the beginnings of my journey to reshape my teaching pedagogy and take it down a co-operative learning based route. This week saw me dive in head first into using some key 'indicators' that define a co-operative learning classroom and use them with a year 1/2 class. What did I teach? What resources did I use? Why am I doing it? Jump Under the Umbrella this week to find out these answers and more!
