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!

Welcome to episode 106 of The PE Umbrella Podcast and part two of my interview with Stuart Owen.

This week we continue our quality conversation and turn our attention to Sport Diddy and skill acquisition in children. We talk about nature vs nurture and decide whether ANYBODY can truly master a SKILL. Through this discussion, we elaborate on the 3 stages of skill acquisition and the importance of Stuarts ten golden rules as a means to promote the best possible environment to learn. Underpinning all of this, we make strong links as to how this would look in the Primary PE classroom and highlight areas in which there are clear opportunities for crossover.

So what are you waiting for? Come and join us Under the Umbrella!
