Dazza, do you let the children choose the scenario card they work on, or do you give them one? What would happen if one child wanted to work on a drama, but everyone else was using a writing, or maths card? I have been using a role play area for one term now and it has been great. I have planned it in to match Literacy objectives so far so have given them the tasks to be completed. Your structure seems to give them more freedom, and also means the role play doesn't have to be linked to literacy which I like.
