2\10 Do you ever find that your role-play themes seem not to be working?

When engaged in SchemaPlay the child applies known schemes (operations) and schemas (figurative knowledge) to new contexts. This is what makes play meaningful for a child. It is their ability to make sense of the activity, to see the relationships between what they what they know and what they can do – this is how learning develops.
