Session 193: PE Subject Special

-Co-host, Lesley Dancey, set 6 questions to guide the conversation for this #UKEdChat PE Subject Special:

  • Literacy & numeracy skills impact on all subjects and areas. Can these be developed meaningfully in PE?
  • What is physical literacy and is it an integral part of each nation’s curriculum? What are your views on a Physical Literacy framework?
  • How have you used PE curriculum & or provision to help support or engage learners from disadvantaged backgrounds and close the gap?
  • How are you using emerging technologies to enhance learning in PE?
  • Research shows the gap between girls and boys participation rates widens during their time at school. How are you addressing this?
  • If you had an endless pot of money, in terms of the physical, what would you do to make a difference for our children & young people?
