What is Physical Education in the Primary School?

In order to teach physical education teachers need additional skills, knowledge and understanding to those required by other subjects in the primary curriculum. Teachers are working with active, moving children in a large space and often a large amount of equipment. They need to be able to teach from observation, differentiate a very wide range of activities and of course, there is the continual awareness of risk assessment and concern for safety.
