Schematic Play – Growing our Knowledge

Presented by Marie Richardson
As an early years practitioner we often look to extending and enriching our knowledge and understanding of play. We are always eager to consider more fully how children develop and learn. Do we revisit theory we are familiar with, do we explore it fully enough? Do we look for our next steps to scaffolding children’s play?
“We use our knowledge of how children learn, for example schema, when making observations of children and as a basis for future planning” How good is our early Learning and Childcare
As an adult who is ‘tuned into play’ and aware of how to support our children should they really need us, do we step back and support their autonomy at the same time. Like every balancing act, there is a lot of stepping into and away from play while children find their own feet in the world. Our timely and supportive intervention can take a childs play to higher levels of learning, it is a prime opportunity to enter the play as a co-creator and help provoke a moment of awe and wonder or enable them to go further along their thinking path.
During this training day delegates will
• Further explore schematic play indoors and outdoors.
• Consider how as children grow schemas increase in number and complexity and discuss how their setting supports this.
• Explore how simple schemas become integrated and coordinated.
• Develop skills to identify schemas that are forming the pattern of behaviour.
• Look more closely at research and publications to extend our knowledge.
• Explore a range of environments where space, resources and interaction enables young children to use their ‘schema’ to develop a depth of knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
