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, Freya Hardy
“Our readers are amazing. They’re switched on, passionate and full of creative ideas. These children deserve a place where they can explore their interests in history, science, art and maths, free from the negative impact of peer pressure and all-pervasive advertising. At AQUILA we consider it a privilege to provide them with such a space. We’ve spent the last 20 years honing our content to appeal to and challenge these bright and brilliant children and the lovely feedback we get from them is the most rewarding part of my job as editor.”
May: Big Statistics
This month we’re embarking on a number crunching mission of epic proportions, with our bonkers Big Statistics issue. It’s crammed full of facts. For example, did you know that Buckingham Palace has a grand total of 240 bedrooms and 78 bathrooms! That’s a lot of beds to make and toilets to clean. Calculata makes the visit of a lifetime for tea and cake and to tot up the numbers. Harvey is looking at Big Data and considering a multitude of questions, such as, ‘what is it?’ ‘Why is there so much of it?’ And, ‘how can we use it to make the world a better place?’ We’ve got all that plus all the usual quizzes and competitions and the results of last summer’s big AQUILA survey. A must see for anyone considering asking for a raise in pocket money.
