Welcome to episode 166 of The PE Umbrella Podcast!
This week I am joined by former assistant head, head of PE and now Early Years course leader at Leeds Beckett University, Kate Bancroft.
On this episode, we begin by exploring Kate's PE teaching past as she shares her answers to the show favourite questions:
- 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?
We then take a trip into Kate's recent research project as we discuss the experiences of transgender children in PE & sport. Kate shares her research findings and the implications it has for us as practitioners. It also gave me the opportunity to reflect on having a transgender student in my year 5 class and the challenges that were presented.
One thing is for sure, there is plenty of food for thought here... So what are you waiting for? Jump under the umbrella with us and join in the conversation by tweeting me @thepeumbrella. Note pad ready!
