Whilst reading Andy's blog about a poster he created (a great one, check it out http://www.pyppewithandy.com/pyp-pe-blog.html) it reminded me how important sharing is and what a time saver it can be for us all. So here we go! If you have any PYP posters or other material that is worth sharing throw it out there! There is no harm in giving out your work, you just share the joy of using your great resources.
It reminded me of a comment a new student to our school made just recently. At the end of the lessons our younger students are asked to reflect on a certain attitude in class by slapping a poster with 'awesome' 'okay' or 'not at my best'. The response from the new student was 'that is so funny we have exactly the same poster at my old school'. It turned out we had shared that poster with a colleague in Switzerland who has been using it too. So come on, share and email me if you like to receive the posters files.
Between teaching, family life and other things we try to share as much resources as we can, go check it out on our resource page. Still more to come.
Although it is common practice that we, as PE teachers, lose our facilities regularly it is seldom that we are stuck for ideas. Today however was one of those days that I struggled to put an engaging and interesting lesson together. No gym, no fitness room, no multi purpose room available but only the fields....normally not a problem but with 20 cm snow it is a different story. Especially if you already had to come up with various alternative lessons in the weeks prior to today. The kids had enough of theory lessons and I wanted to offer a cool, educational alternative. Then I remembered a tweet that I read a little while ago about frisbee on snowshoes. Well, we didn't need the snow shoes but a frisbee lesson would still be a good trans-disciplinary game to teach. The kids and I have fully enjoyed ourselves and at the same time worked on our team strategy and positioning. We had a blast. So thank you to who ever it was and gave me the inspir
