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 episode 108 of The PE Umbrella Podcast and another superb episode as I interview assistant producer for BBC Learning Michael Farnell.

This episode seeks to unpick the ins and outs of the wonderful Super Movers Initiative launched by the BBC and English Premier League, seeking to get children moving more in their school day. Michael talks about what the 'initiative' actually is and shares WHY it was even launched. We then talk about success stories from the initiative so far and how as busy teachers we can find time to fit it into our school day to gain maximum benefit!

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

Welcome to episode 107 of The PE Umbrella Podcast and another awesome interview episode with Mr Dan Fallon.

Dan is a movement specialist coach and ex-member of the royal navy. So when it comes to functional movements he really knows his stuff! In this episode, we dive into the obesity crisis in our Primary Schools and discuss how 'Lifelong' functional movements should and could become a greater staple in the school day of all children.

What is a 'Lifelong' Movement?

What does it mean? What age can they start?

What benefit would the children get?

All of this and so much more in this episode! So what are you waiting for? Come and join us Under the Umbrella!
