A/S Psychology London Zoo Trip
On Thursday 20 June the A/S Psychology students went to London Zoo to carry out observations on animal behaviour as part of increasing their understanding of observational skills. They were delighted that the sun was shining, and they learnt about animal behaviour, their habitats and conservation strategies. I learnt that many had never been before, so it made the trip very special reward at this time of year when they have completed their exams and are looking forward to the challenges of Year 13.
The quotes from the students included: “It was much better than I expected. I learnt a lot and it was very interesting to see a variety of animals and how they adapted and survived in their environment. I’d go again.”“It was interesting to see how the animals reacted in a synthetic “natural” environment.”
“I really enjoyed how ZSL had recreated the environments animals’ need, such as the rainforest, which you get to walk through. I also got to see one of my favourite animals – giraffes! It was such an exciting experience
