About this module
Schemas are when children have a very strong drive or natural urge to play in this particular way. Their high motivation in this way of playing means they are very involved in activities which means deep levels of learning are achieved.
Schemas were first introduced into the EYFS in 2008.
Schema play is especially noticeable in toddlers. It is not possible for an adult to understand how an infant sees the world so we make assumptions that their understanding is similar to ours, but it is not. Understanding schematic play and how this fits into the Characteristics of Effective Learing can help you provide meaningful experiences for the children in your care. This course focuses on the 11 most common Schemas, giving you resource ideas and examples of how you can enhance children's vocabulary through their schematic behaviours.
