set of two guides
covering Schemas. One explains schemas in our 'Understanding
Schemas' wheel, whilst the other offers ideas and support through our
'Supporting Schemas' wheel
many requests for a schemas resource, we have now developed these two new wheels. They have been written by Schemas specialist Stella Nalini and
outdoor play specialist and early years
activity trainer Gail Ryder Richardson.
first of these two early years wheels is 'A Guide to Understanding
Schemas' and starts off by explaining what they are and why
schemas are so important. The wheel has eight other sections on
each side covering the following areas; Trajectory, Transporting,
Connecting, On top, Scattering, Rotation, Enclosing and
Enveloping. Under these headings, one side of the wheel describes
how a child might be recognised as having a pre-dominant position
towards some of these areas more than others, whilst the other
side focuses on the potential learning for each area.
The second wheel is 'A Guide to Supporting Schemas' and offers
ideas and suggestions for noticing and supporting schematic
patterns of play and behaviour. Again using the eight areas used
in the Understanding wheel, one side of the wheel suggests
activities that can be done inside the home or learning
environment, whilst the other side focuses on the outdoors. A
number of the ideas and suggestions can also be used in both
all of our other Development Wheels, these wheels can be
'customised' by commissioning your own copies with your logo and
contact details on the back of the wheel.
can also be bought individually from stock for £4.99 each, or you
