The Inspired PE Forum has Launched

Hello! We are pleased to announced the launch of the Inspired PE Forum, set up in January 2015 as a place for PE teachers from across the world to share ideas and discuss common issues.
Having joined twitter this year and seen the power of social media as a tool for CPD. I quickly became a big fan of bloggers such as The PE Geek, Teacher Toolkit, PE Tip of The Day etc,  however I found I could only get so much information in 140 characters especially when some of the most inventive teachers don’t have blogs to follow! After a quick Google search I was stunned to find there wasn’t an active discussion forum for PE Teachers to share their ideas. From this Inspired PE was born and I’m sure it will prove to be a valuable tool for physical educators around the world.Please check out our competition to celebrate our launch. You can win some awesome PE related prizes whilst getting to grips with the Inspired PE forum.  The forum has had a good uptake so far with just under 50 PE teachers registering in the first 3 days however there has been over 500 guests who have viewed the forum but sadly not registered – I urge all PE teachers to register as I believe the forum is a great place to discuss ideas and chat with likeminded PE teachers (But I would say that wouldn’t I?!). Don’t take my word for it, sign up ask a question or share some knowledge.
I look forward to chatting with you… remember – some discussions need more than 140 characters

Continuous Training: Stadium Race

Right this one takes a bit of effort to prepare but once it’s done you can use it over and over with all classes (like I have!).

I had been trying to think of an idea that would engage my year 9 boys class in our fitness module so came up with the stadium race.  I plotted our school and some local football teams (Walsall, West Brom, Birmingham and Aston Villa) onto a Google maps printout using Photoshop.  Each line is numbered at every mile and the printout is placed onto a pinboard. As the pupils run/row/cycle on the CV machines they move their pin along the map towards whichever stadium they choose.

A basic guide to Handball & EHA Framework for Schools Handball

If your not teaching Team Handball at your school yet, you need to rethink your game plan.  I first started playing at University out of curiosity and despite initially not knowing much about it, was instantly  hooked. A fast moving and surprisingly physical game labelled by the EHA as the fastest team game in the world.
