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