I am doing a course to help me do more with the children related to how they play.  Here is a short video which may help you to understand what Schemas are and how children use different schemas to learn.


Trajectory – up and down and along and back movements

Transporting – Moving items from one place to another

Enveloping – covering things up

Enclosing/containing – putting things into containers

Rotation – things that go round and round

Connection – joining things together

Positioning – putting things in particular places

Transforming – changing things

taken from the Pacey website course.
