The #PhysEd Book Club | Network 01/07/14 15:16 Categories: Network For most of us, summer has finally arrived and we get to spend a couple of months recharging our batteries and getting ready for the new school year. One of the things I enjoy most about the summer break is having a lot more time to read. I feel like I have been slowly accumulating books on my bookshelf ever since Christmas... yet haven’t really had a chance to go through all of them! There’s no doubt that reading can be a great way to keep learning as a teaching professional and help inspire new ideas for our physical education programs. This summer, I’d like to invite you to join me in my reading and help start a new #PhysEd Book Club. 1. Joining the club is easy: all you have to do is join the #PhysEd Book Club Google+ Community. 2. Every 1st of the month, we will be starting a new book. Throughout the month, we will discuss the book we are reading via Google+ posts and Hangouts. 3. So that’s it! Thanks for reading and happy teaching! By: Joey Feith

KS1 Resources PowerPoints and teaching resources for KS1 and KS2 PE lessons to be re-energised to spread a love of sport It comes amid concerns that competitive sports are becoming the preserve of privileged children attending private schools. Primary school teachers are usually generalists, and cover a wide range of subjects during their training. However, the new teachers will spend half of their training period focussed on PE. Candidates will be expected to have a degree in sport of “high personal achievement” in sporting pursuits. Some £360,000 of government funding will be set aside for the training. It will lead to children developing a “lasting love of sport” rather than merely showing an interest during the World Cup and Wimbledon, ministers hope. The announcement comes just weeks after Ofsted warned that too many pupils are being denied the chance to take part in competitive sport by state schools who treat it as an "optional extra". In a new report, it said children's education was poorer if they were deprived of the chance to compete.

Nerd Fitness: Helping You Lose Weight, Get Stronger, Live Better. I received an email a few months back from a NF reader that made me smile: “I am going back to square one. I noticed the only habit that I changed and stuck with was drinking tons of water. Have you ever started playing a game and get a few hours in and go “man I wish I knew these controls/tips from the beginning”? I’m restarting my journey now that I have a better idea of the controls.” This resonated with me, because when I first played EverQuest (similar to World of Warcraft), the first character I created was terrible. When I started again playing as a new character, I FLEW through the first 30 levels: I understood the controls, how the game worked, and what needed to get done; it was much easier the second time through! The same is true for any boss battle you first encounter in any game. Getting in shape is no different. Each time you start over, you’re getting closer to that point of making things stick.
