'Trainee teachers will welcome the concise and reader-friendly format this book offers. Julia Lawrence has taken great care to provide a balanced and relevant overview of the major topics trainee teachers often lack confidence in, when planning and delivering lessons. A particularly useful and welcome feature for trainee teachers is the book's companion website with helpful links to teaching resources. This book provides essential reading for all trainee primary teachers.'

Nigel Clarke, Senior Lecturer in Physical Education, University of Cumbria.

Physical Education is an important part of the primary curriculum and one that provides unique challenges for those involved with its teaching. 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.

This book offers a balanced and comprehensive overview of the subject, covering issues such as safe practice in PE, inclusion, subject leadership and cross-curricular approaches to physical education supported by an accessible theory-informed approach.

Teaching Primary Physical Education is supported by a companion website www.sagepub.co.uk/lawrence, which includes further practical examples of applications, links to relevant literature and teaching resources, offering further student-friendly material for use across different physical disciplines.

This is essential reading for all students studying primary physical education on primary initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT), and employment-based routes into teaching, and also for those on Sports Studies courses with a Primary PE component.

Dr Julia Lawrence is Subject Leader of Physical Education at Leeds Metropolitan University.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In a period when the amount of time devoted to physical education on primary initial teacher training routes is increasingly becoming 'squeezed', trainee teachers will welcome the concise and reader-friendly format this book offers. Julia Lawrence has taken great care to provide a balanced and relevant overview of the major topics trainee teachers often lack confidence in, when planning and delivering lessons. The book follows a logical sequence, firstly exploring and justifying the importance of the subject within the primary context, before using an accessible theory-informed approach to discuss other important areas such as Safe Practice and how children develop movement competencies. A particularly useful and welcome feature for trainee teachers is the book's companion website. Helpful links to teaching resources and further reading will appeal in particular to non-specialist trainees hoping to gain a deeper understanding of this subject. This book provides essential reading for all trainee primary teachers who are following undergraduate, postgraduate or employment-based routes into teaching' -
