Teachers recommend AQUILA

“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.”

 


July/August: Shipwrecks/Australia

Shiver me timbers! It’s time for another spectacular summer double issue, and this time round we’re going Down Under in more ways than one. July’s issue is all about shipwrecks. We learn how submersibles work and have a go at making our very own. Aquila finds out all about the life and times of explorer, Matthew Flinders, explores the invention of bonkers ‘bergships’ in World War II, and dives down deep to visit the world’s oldest – and possibly most important – Bronze Age shipwreck.  August’s issue is all about Australia and features fabulous letters from loads of our Australian subscribers, plus we explore the Great Barrier Reef, the Southern night sky, and mythological Australian animals. All that as well as the usual competitions, quizzes and jokes. We’ve enough to keep you busy all summer long, it’ll be more bonkers than a barrel of bunyips.
