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 153 of The PE Umbrella Podcast! This week I am joined by ex Primary School Teacher, PE Lead and founder of Burn2Learn Alex Ogden.

On this episode, we take a trip down memory lane and chat about ALL things PE from his time leading the subject. We find out what his favourite warm-up activity is, which PE misconceptions he would banish forever and what he considered to be his worst ever PE lesson! Not only that, we then talk about all things Physically Active Learning (PAL) and how his concept of 'Burn2Learn' came to be. From its conception to the amazing impact on students across the country we find out all about Burn2Learn and how it can create a path for greater success at your school!
