Abstract

This study investigated the concept that linked learning can be used with the teaching of physical education in the primary school. Research consisted of a detailed on line questionnaire to collect the opinions of a small sample of teachers and an in depth interview with a teaching professional. The data showed that a high proportion of the sample used linked learning in their teaching and regarded it as a popular and effective teaching strategy, findings displayed an overwhelming consensus that physical education is the hardest of all subjects to use with linked learning, this aside many of the sample showed creative examples of links between physical education and other areas of the curriculum.
This study further discusses in detail the implications of the findings and suggests ways in which this data gained can be further utilised whilst also offering possible avenues for expanding on this study in the future.
