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 115 of The PE Umbrella podcast! Joining me Under the Umbrella today is elementary school PE teacher of 36 years and soccer coach, Mr Jim Harte!

Through a career spanning over 3 decades, it's fair to say that Jim has seen it all and with that comes a wealth of experience to draw upon. The greatest strength of Jim, in my opinion, is his willingness to innovate and continually reinvent himself as a teacher, pushing his teaching pedagogy and ideas to this day.

During this episode, we talk about the changes to education that Jim has witnessed, as well as some huge creative successes that he has brought to the PE program at his school! Not only that, but we have the usual show favourites to sink our teeth into as well...

- His top, class management tip

- The worst/best lesson he ever taught

- His favourite warm-up activity EVER!

- His biggest learning curve this past year

So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella.
