Welcome to episode 163 of The PE Umbrella Podcast!
This week I am joined by Early Childhood Movement consultant Helen Battelley.
On this episode, we chat about ALL things PE, movement and music in the early years setting and beyond. There is no doubting the importance of 'getting it right' in the early years in order to cement positive attitudes mentally towards Physical Activity and prepare the body physically for a life long love of movement.
During this episode, we talk about WHY it is so critical to get it right in EYFS and the potential consequences if we do not. Helen then tells us what we CAN DO to make sure we do get it right and throws so many knowledge bombs you can take away that you'll probably have to listen to the episode twice! We dive into lots of rabbit holes of interesting discussion backed by research and I'm certain there's plenty for you to think about no matter the age group you teach!
So what are you waiting for? Jump under the umbrella with us and join in the conversation by tweeting me @thepeumbrella. Note pad ready!
