This week I am joined for a record 4th time by the legend that is Ryan Forwood for this special edition in which we chat about ALL things Sport Education! 

As a teaching model, I've enjoyed some success using it over the past few years but much of my learning, ideas and understanding has come from Ryan, the resources he's shared and the reading he has recommended.

In this episode, we break it all down with the following questions and more...

- What is lesson zero?

- What sports can we use?

Welcome to episode 171 of The PE Umbrella Podcast!

This week I am joined by Primary School PE teacher Tom Feighan. I had the pleasure of hearing Tom speak earlier this year at the Dream Big Sports Conference, in which he shared the incredible work that he and his school have done with the Primary School PE & Sport Premium and I knew immediately I wanted to speak with him on the podcast.

On this episode, we chat about ALL things PE and how things have been going for Tom through the Covid-19 pandemic. He tells us about his expectations and preparations for returning to school and how he things the PE landscape may change. Of course, we also take a trip down the regular show questions, seeking to draw out knowledge bombs from Tom and his hands-on experience teaching Primary PE. This means you can expect answers to questions such as:

- What currently excites you about PE?

- What misconceptions about our subject should be banished to room 101?

- What is your ideal PE lesson recipe?

- What is your worst ever PE lesson and what did you learn from it?

ALL of that and SO much more as Tom shares some tremendous advice that you can try for yourself.
