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 145 of The PE Umbrella Podcast!

This week I am podcasting solo and incredibly excited to bring you this reflection episode. Without exaggeration, this week was one of my most favourite few days teaching that I've probably had in at least 2 years, and I'm going to share with you why! It took courage and a realisation that I needed to push myself out of my comfort zone, and I mean REALLY out of my comfort zone. It involved dancing.
