First Hand Observations at Prep for Sixth Form Psychology
On Thursday, Upper Sixth Psychology pupils visited Year 1 and Year 3 pupils in the Prep School to conduct observations and see Piaget’s stages of development first-hand . Pupils performed a range of experiments and activities testing children’s ability to conserve (understand that mass/volume/number stays the same even if the appearance changes) as well as their egocentrism (ability to understand another’s point of view). It was certainly a fun afternoon for the Prep School pupils and a real opportunity for our Upper Sixth to see the psychological theory they have learnt in the Cognition and Development topic come to life! The pupils will now apply their understanding of data and analysis and inferential statistics to present their findings in the form of a psychological report.
