Teachers recommend AQUILA
A recent study by the British Educational Research Association shows that 20% of primary aged children find school lessons too easy, and are not being stretched. AQUILA Magazine is recommended by educational specialists: as well as extending children’s skills in English, maths and science it stimulates children’s interest and increases their general knowledge.
“Children deserve good writing and innocent fun!”
A message from the Editor, Jackie Berry
“They say time flies when you’re enjoying yourself, and I can hardly believe that AQUILA will be 20 years old in 2013! That’s quite a record in the magazine business, and in that time we’ve seen other children’s magazines come and go. What makes AQUILA different, I think, is that we never underestimate our readers, and the wonderful feedback we get from them has always been a very rewarding part of being AQUILA editor!”
May issue: Sport
Hop, skip and jump – it’s time to get out there and enjoy some sport as well as watch it on TV! How does diet affect our performance in sport and how are statistics used to work out sports results? Children can choose their own top sports stars of all time, find out about horse-riding and 150 years of the FA, make a crazy golf game, test their sporting knowledge and read about a boy who found sport helped him to be brave.
June issue: The Equator
We are going tropical this month – travelling round the globe along the imaginary line known as the equator! Children can read about lemurs, investigate the story of the suffragette movement, and make a simple armillary sphere. There are puzzles, jokes, competitions and stories, plus some extra quirky facts and figures about AQUILA Magazine which is 20 this year!
July/August double issue: The Circus/Bird Watching
Get set for a bumper summer magazine! Here is a special double issue to keep you entertained right through the holidays: a mixture of nature, science facts and fun, history, puzzles and general knowledge. Have fun in the big top, learn about balance and spinning, make your own juggling balls and follow our tips on juggling. Also in this issue, there are top tips from a young ornithologist, how to draw birds, make a bird feeder, and lots more! Includes stories, reviews, letters, jokes and Ian the cat.
