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!

Welcome to The PE Umbrella Podcast, episode 71! Today, I reflect on the use of 'Gamification' in a physical education setting. Does it add value and purpose or is it causing problems in the long run? Buckle in for some honest truths as I unpick what is truly going on. I'll see you Under the Umbrella!

Welcome to episode 70 of the PE Umbrella podcast. This week marks a very special episode as I welcome my older brother Rob to the show. The inspiration behind much of my own career path, Rob is a Secondary physed teacher of over ten years now and has experienced being head of years 7-13. In this episode I seek to understand how secondary PE teachers view what is going on in Primary PE and if it is good enough. The fact is, you may be triggered by some of what we discuss in this episode, but remember, we are not generalising the whole population, rather speaking from our own experiences. So sit back and enjoy a brotherly chat about all things physed Under the Umbrella!

Welcome to episode 69 of the PE Umbrella Podcast. This week, I am sharing with you my recent journey into the power of creation. What do I mean by that? Well, I have recently being creating specific resources for the work I am currently delivering and it has been awesome! By using the App 'Comic Life' I have breathed new life into my teaching resources and created ones that are teacher specific, student specific and some that are both. During this episode I share with you and discuss a resource that fits each of those categories and explain how I have used it and what benefits it has brought to my teaching. Make sure you head over to www.peumbrella.com and grab all three as they are on there for FREE! So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join me Under the Umbrella.
