So… here goes! Welcome.

I’ve finally came around to creating a blog! Needless to say, it’s taken long enough.

Recently I have been so inspired by the amount of fellow PE teachers sharing their knowledge and great ideas through blogs/vlogs. I felt that I had to get involved and start to post my thoughts and ideas too.

First of all, I’d like to introduce myself… I’m Nathan, or Mr Walker to the kids. I am a PE Teacher in Doha, Qatar (Yes, that is where the 2022 Fifa World Cup will be held, though that’s another topic in itself!). I teach at Qatar International School which is a British Curriculum school situated in Doha. I’m a Year Nine Tutor, Duke of Edinburgh International Award Co-ordinator and Head Coach of the U16 Qatar National Schoolboys Football Team.

I hope that this blog will allow me to share my ideas and create discussion amongst fellow #PEGeeks. I am passionate about making PE engaging for all pupils and promoting lifelong physical activity. I have been working on developing innovative methods of assessment without levels, self/peer-assessment tools and effective ways of using technology in practical lessons.

Thanks for reading,
