Dublin City University (Susan Marron and Frances Murphy) and Munster Technological University (Jackie Gallagher) are partners in a European project to promote inclusion in primary physical education classes for all children, with a focus on children with additional needs.
The Erasmus+ funded project has developed an online resource highlighting practices, strategies and resources to support teachers to include all children in primary PE lessons.
In partnership with the Irish Primary PE Association, 20 Irish teachers participated in a workshop on DCU’s St. Patrick Campus on Saturday 12th June, the first of a series of European teacher professional workshops, to officially launch the online resource and to share practice. The event was also attended virtually by European partners and the European PE Association members who could observe the engagement of teachers with the resource and their collaborative work to share practice in the sports hall environment.

The practical workshop is part of the Disentangling Inclusion in Primary Physical Education (DIPPE) Erasmus+ project which seeks to support inclusion in primary physical education. It has resulted in the development of a free open educational resource (a web application) the DIPPE website. This website was designed to support teachers in accessing information, pedagogical tools and resources to include all children in primary physical education lessons. This face to face practical workshop will explore resources on this website. The workshop will be from 10am-1 pm Saturday 12th June 2021 and follow DCU Health and Safety protocol. The workshop has a maximum capacity for 30 teachers. As it is free, please ONLY register if you can turn up on the day. We are delighted to invite you for tea/coffee from 9.30 and a light lunch from 1pm-1.30pm (outdoors so bring a warm jacket). Registration will close at 12 midday 4th June to allow further workshop details and health declaration forms to be sent to you to complete and return in advance to allow Heath and Safety procedures to be implemented. We would be delighted to see you for the practical workshop as we draw towards the end of a memorable school year. Please share the event with your colleagues and friends. The workshop is being hosted by DCU a partner in the Erasmus project. The Irish Primary PE Association is an associate partner. REGISTER HERE
The picture above shows the children from Mayo NS Co. Laois, with their PE Xpo Irish Primary PE Association medals. Their entry was titled Multiple Ways of Jumping in Our Multigrade Class.
Thank you to Saragh Buggy and all the other teachers who entered projects during a very challenging year due the challenging environment.
Other project titles included Outstanding Olympians, Tennis-Developing Skills in Our Pods, Oodles of Noodles… The project programmes/descriptions, and children’s diary entries, showing and telling what the boys and girls learned in PE lessons with the Head( Knowledge), Heart (Socially and Affectively) and Hands (Physically) were all beautifully presented. However the real treat was meeting the boys and girls online via zoom to hear about and see their learning. Congratulations All
