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!

Welcome to episode 157 of The PE Umbrella Podcast!

This week I am joined for a second stint on the show by Elementary PE teacher Cliff Roop. On this episode, we squeeze in questions that we simply couldn't fit in first time around to understand better how Cliff works and thinks. We then jump in and focus on the importance of team building and cooperative type activities and units to set your students up for success in the coming year and build solid foundations. Cliff shares his recent success in using my 'crack the codes' activity and details the modifications and learning that both he and his students got from it. Not to mention the several rabbit holes and tangents we venture down, this makes for a fascinating listen and brings the PE knowledge bombs...

Welcome to episode 156 of The PE Umbrella Podcast!

This week I am joined by former England, Leeds Rhinos and Bradford Bulls Women's Rugby League player, Lois Forsell.

On this episode, we chat about Lois' journey from a PE loving young girl into an elite athlete playing at the very highest level. We discuss environmental and psychological factors that contributed to the journey that Lois went on leading to her representing her country. I also dive into the early experiences of PE that Lois had, and how this shaped/contributed towards her career trajectory. We also enjoyed chatting about the peer/social pressures that can negatively impact on girls enjoyment/willingness to continue being physically active/sporty and what Lois saw of this herself, particularly through her high school years. It all provides some fascinating insights into what it takes to make it to the top.
