Aquila children’s magazine is a great space for all who want to find out more.

This magazine, written with enquiring 8-12 year olds in mind, goes out to our Year 4 and Year 5 classes on a rota basis over the academic year. Each month there is a theme, through which Aquila will explore maths, science, literacy, history, art …. and general knowledge with many articles.


As well as all this there is a double page spread of superb competitions! Entries are encouraged. They are handed in and marked in school, and all competitors posted around school – especially on the Aquila notice board. Merits, team tokens are available for all competitors, and of course a prize for the overall winner each month.

The recent results are:

Maths Competitions

Occasionally we hold Maths Competitions for pupils in school, where we encourage pupils to work systematically, and record and enter their thinking processes along side their solutions.
