    A 10 year old's perspective on Primary PE

    A 10 year old's perspective on Primary PE

    With me under the umbrella this week is another one of the most high-profile guests I have ever had on the show.  He is the other half of the Ellis clan, Jiu Jitsu savage, master doodler, and all-round kind-hearted soul, my son, Oliver.
    In this episode I learn about how he views PE as he approaches his final few months of primary school and summarise how these may have been shaped.
    I'm very proud of both Oliver and Penelope and the honest and articulate answers they have shared over the past few weeks.
