'With the addition of clear links to the Teachers’ Standards at the start of each chapter, this second edition of Teaching Primary PE will be a particularly useful resource for QTS students developing their portfolio of evidence. The updated text also includes increased focus on physical literacy adding further depth to discussions and providing some clarity for students of primary PE enabling them to make better sense of this concept and its relationship with fundamental motor skills, physical development and the EYFS framework.'
This is a comprehensive text which provides trainees teachers with an opportunity to consider their own early experiences in PE and shape the practice they develop in school. Each chapter carefully examines theoretical perspectives without over complicating key concepts and areas for trainee teachers to consider. I particularly like the way questions are scaffolded for the reader throughout the text encouraging the reader to critically reflect.
Teaching Primary Physical Education (TPPE) by Julia Lawrence is essential reading for all adults who work with 4 - 11 year old children in the context of physical education. The second edition of TPPE includes the development that all chapters are referenced to the teaching standards. This addition will be very helpful for trainee teachers, teachers and teacher educators. The second edition also includes a new chapter on Health and Well-Being.
Teaching Primary Physical Education provides a concise overview of the knowledge, skills and understanding required for the confident teaching of physical education in primary schools. The reassuring approach of the book works well to give teachers confidence in what they are teaching and there are plenty of ideas which can be put into practice in a range of situations, indoors or outside.
