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 111 of The PE Umbrella podcast!

Joining me Under the Umbrella today is Primary PE teacher, straight out of Yorkshire, Gareth Jones. Doing wonderful things just down the road from me in York, Gareth works alongside 21 schools to improve their offering of PE provision and is making a real difference. During this episode, we reminisce about our classroom teaching roles, the current state of primary PE and where we think it needs to head. Not only that but we dive into the show favourites as Gareth talks about:

- His top, class management tip

- The worst/best lesson he ever taught

- His favourite warm-up activity EVER!

So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the Umbrella for some Primary PE knowledge bombs!

This week I am excited to bring you TWO more awesome PE games to try out with your class! Lasting the test of time and first used over a decade ago, these activities are a must to have in the locker when teaching dribbling skills to your class. Heaps of fun with lots of practical teaching covering the 4 umbrellas, what's not to love about them?

Having used them successfully in KS1 and KS2 it's safe to say they will be an enormous hit!

Welcome to episode 109 of The PE Umbrella podcast!

This week I am excited to bring you another lovely activity and accompanying PDF to use with your students called Mix Your Palette! Versatile and heaps of fun, your students will love working on their throwing accuracy and competing head to head with each other to be the first to mix their colours. Want less competition? Don't worry, students can play cooperatively to build their palette and choose their own level of difficulty!

With links to all four Umbrellas, this will give you plenty to discuss and is a delightful way to continue building the PE Umbrellas of your students whether they're in EYFS, KS1 or KS2!

To assist you in your listening, head over to www.peumbrella.com and pick up the FREE accompanying PDF of Mix Your Palette on the resources page, as well as the Umbrella reflection tool also mentioned in this episode!

So what are you waiting for? Come on over, and join me under The PE Umbrella!
