WELCOME TO YEOMANS PSYCHOLOGY AND TEACHING
We use the image of a bridge in our logo because it illustrates our view of psychology and teaching.
Thinking skills and processes are very important to us. Our years of experience in education has led us to the view that it's important for children and young people (and adults!) to learn how to be effective thinkers. Thinking skills (or cognitive functions, or cognitive abilities, or process skills..........there are a number of different titles) aren't tied to any one particular subject. They help us to learn and to be flexible in our learning. The bridge symbolises the idea that thinking skills provide a 'bridge' into all sorts of learning. So, for example, if you use the thinking skill of comparison, you can apply this to maths (more and less), literacy (does my spelling of this word match what's in the dictionary), history (compare the reign of Henry VII and Henry VIII)....and so on. Chess is a great example of the way in which thinking skills can be used, and it provides an excellent vehicle for developing these skills too.
