I have just been reading about 'deconstructed role play'. I have read the ABC blog but am no closer to understanding why the role play is called 'deconstructed'. Children have always taken what they want and used it as they want in order to work through their own schemes. Surely this could just as well be called 'children's imaginative role play. It would be much easier for people to understand. Deconstructed doesn't even make linguistic sense. Why is there more and more jargon in EY? Is it to make the people who invent these new terms feel as if they have invented a new concept? I don't think it is helpful to use this kind of meaningless language.
