    Summer double issue: Ancient Egypt

    In this edition of AQUILA children can make a Water Clock to find out how the Ancient Egyptians learned to measure time; explore ancient Star Science in ‘A Tomb with a View’ and tackle some Ancient Egyptian Maths (including some astonishingly clever multiplication techniques!).

    Howard Carter describes the ’wonderful things’ he found in Tutenkamen’s tomb and Pharaoh Amenhotep pens a hilarious advice column. We meet a bask of man-eating Nile Crocodiles – some of the world’s largest living reptiles, and find out what to do if you’re ever caught between a croc and a hard place!

    As well as baking some traditional Fire-pit Bread from scratch, make a Matchbox Mummy and enjoy a double helping of summer fun, games, quizzes and competitions - you’d have to be embalm-y to miss it!

Aquila Childrens's Magazine September 2016 WWllSeptember issue: Children of World War II  

Grab your gas-mask and climb aboard!

This September we discover WWII from a child’s eye view, bringing to life the amazing true stories of wartime children, like doodlebug-dodging Doris who was just ten when she was evacuated to Mr and Mrs Cole’s tearooms in rural Hertfordshire.

Readers can make a model Anderson shelter and have a go at Make Do and Mend. We make some Penicillin (strictly for observational purposes of course!) and find out how our Scouts and Guides helped win the war.

Including a timeshift visit to the German occupied Channel Islands plus AQUILA's usual ration of games, fiendish quizzes and competitions.

Is AQUILA suitable for both boys and girls?

Absolutely – we steer clear of stereotyping as it is our intention to introduce all children to new and different ideas. Educational specialists recommend AQUILA because it widens children’s interest and understanding, rather than encouraging them to concentrate exclusively on their favourite/best subjects.

Can they receive their first magaine on a special date?

We can personalize your gift order to dispatch and arrive in time for a special occasion. For birthdays please enter the child’s birthday and a gift message when you make your order. We will note the birthday and dispatch the first magazine marked to open on the birthdate.
