Teaching Physical Education in the Primary School Summary

Teaching Physical Education in the Primary School by Ian Pickup

This is a comprehensive yet accessible guide to the teaching and learning of physical education in the primary school. By taking a developmental approach, readers are encouraged to plan lessons that are individually relevant, worthwhile and exciting for children, and to ensure that learning is at the heart of the physical education experience. In addition to covering all activity areas of the physical education curriculum, the authors provide guidance to ensure that the subject is planned, delivered, assessed and managed effectively. Teachers are encouraged to consider a range of issues that impact on subject delivery, and reflect on strategies and skills required for effective subject leadership. This book is invaluable reading for all in-service and trainee primary teachers, and those who work within wider school sports partnerships. It provides a theoretical and practical focus for those wishing to deliver high quality physical education in the primary school.

Teaching Physical Education in the Primary School Reviews

"With physical education in primary schools more important than ever, it is encouraging to read one of the few books moving beyond the "tips for teachers" approach. With its clear focus on the developmental factors
influencing children's learning, this book offers student teachers, class teachers and subject leaders a wealth of accessible background information to help them develop quality physical education programmes for their children, their classes and their schools."--Sanford Lakoff
