Teachers recommend AQUILA
A study by the British Educational Research Association showed that 1 in 5 primary-aged children receives insufficient challenge in the class room. AQUILA Magazine is recommended to extend children with a variety of cross-curricular material.
“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 is now 20 years old! 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!”
December: Masks and Costumes
Aquila and the gang love dressing up, and this month’s issue will celebrate masks and costumes from all over the world. We’ll make our own decorated masks, find out why Father Christmas changes his outfit depending on where he is and discover the magic of traditional Native American costume. Plus, find out why pipes sometimes burst in winter with our ice-cool science expert, Harvey.
January 2014: Giants
Wave a massive hello to 2014 with our Giants issue. Explore the natural wonders of the Giant’s Causeway, learn all about how we grow, make yourself a hilarious pair of giant hands and join our resident philosophers Philip and Phoebe as they think about how much of what we see is created by the brain.
Let AQUILA spirit you away to Nordic climes this February as we explore Scandinavia through the eyes of our readers in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland. Witness the splendour of the Northern lights, make your very own floating dragon boat and read about the extraordinary life and times of the adventurer, Thor Heyerdahl.
