Exploring Soil Erosion
Environmental Science students investigated the factors that affect soil erosion and explored the effectiveness of different methods to prevent and reduce soil erosion, including: the replication of vegetation cover using leaves and grass; terracing using plasticene and windbreaks using stones. The results showed that the methods all prevent soil erosion, but the most effective was maintaining vegetation cover. This has additional advantages as it prevents wind erosion as well as erosion by rain. It also has other advantages as people can use vegetation to provide food and timber. Reported by Derin

Intermediate Mathematical Challenge
Throughout this term, students have been applying themselves to different maths challenges to extend and challenge their knowledge. Most recent of these challenges took place on the 7th February when a small group sat the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, which is a one hour test for students from G1 and G2. The Challenge is organised by United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) based at Leeds University and are designed to be lively, intriguing, multiple choice question papers, which stimulate interest in maths. Later this term, G1 students will be taking part in a team maths challenge; working together to solve problems set by AMSP.
