‘Why is there always one child who persistently plays with the door, who mixes sand with water or throws objects across the room? Can these repetitive behaviours, known as schemas, be useful in targeting children’s next steps within the EYFS? Is there a way to use them to unlock learning in young children?’ This is a practical handbook, explaining what schemas are and how to identify them. The chapters each revolve around a particular schema and feature case studies to discuss how that schema can be used to help children progress within the seven areas of learning, as outlined in the EYFS.
