A group of year 12 Psychology students were on ‘babysitting duty’ during an enrichment activity organised in the sixth form. The students are currently studying the topic of Attachment as part of their A level Psychology studies, and were lucky enough to be able to use the artificial baby simulators from the Applied Studies Department to test their hand as primary caregivers.
The students were tasked with the responsibility of looking after ‘Elvis’ and Adele’ for the day, doing the usual jobs that new parents are expected to do, such as nappy changing, feeding and burping baby!
All students were engaged with the activity and found it a worthwhile opportunity to experience first-hand what a challenging job being a parent is!
The Psychology staff and students would like to give thanks again to the staff in Applied Studies for allowing the Psychology Department to look after the babies!
