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! In non Covid times entries are encouraged. Currently we have moved to the Online Challenges set by the Aquila Team which are then posted on the class's Showbie page. Merits, team tokens are available for all competitors, and of course a prize for the overall winner each month.
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.
