Psychology students from The Woodroffe School study pupils at Colyton

Psychology students from The Woodroffe School had plenty to think about on a visit to Colyton.

They went along to the town’s primary school and the Caterpillars playgroup to assess the processes involved in learning.

Their teacher, Vanessa Cropp said: “As part of their A Level course the students are studying developmental psychology.

“We were particularly interested in how children develop their behavioural and cognitive skills between the ages of two and 11. By observing the children in different situations, we’ve discovered how different skills are acquired at different ages.”
