Default CYPOP 30 outcome 1.2 .... GRRRRR

OK, I've completed everything else ... but I am stuck on what they mean by the different types of creative activities.

Solitary ... seems quite straight forward independent activities
Shared ????? <---- please help
Group ????? <---- please help
Sedentary - writing.
Active - physical and movement
Cerebral - mental, logic and problem solving

Any help on the shared and group definitions would be great and also my brain has appeared to have gone to sleep... so if you see I have missed something that defines what they actually are... please let me know. Actually writing the benefits won't be a problem once I know exactly what each means in practice.

Thanks

A shared activity can be anything that 2 or more are taking part in, so you may see two children sharing an activity such as bricks and building/being creative in their design (and helping/role modelling etc) or two children playing with props such as material - different lengths and widths and perhaps some boxes and jointly creating their imaginative play/story (rather than along aside) - the difference being that you can see they are interacting, communicating and playing in 'their' way which shows they are sharing the experience.

A group activity can be something such as doing a group activity such as making a large art piece. The class could all be asked to dance to a piece of music and asked to interpret it how they wish; they may be provided with long pieces of material/scarves so they can dance as 'the wind' , 'a rainbow' etc. a group of children may be designing and planting up a flower bed using their own creative ideas.The group activity usually (because of the numbers) may need adult direction depending on what the activity is and the age and stage of the children.

You'll probably find that activities for your answers cross from one another- after all the activites above can all be solitary, shared or done as a group, so you may be able to cross reference as long as you define how the activity differs from each other.

Remember to give your assessor an example of each type, so she can see you know what it is and then how this is provided for in practice.
