Sebastian is at an age where he loves magazines and will spend quite some time sitting and reading one. He was recently sent a copy of Amazing! magazine, an educational magazine aimed at children aged 6-11 to review.
In a world where we rely heavily on technology parents are often looking for ways to get children learning away from screens. This 36 page magazine is full of fun facts, articles, puzzles and activities and it's content cover all areas of the national curriculum.
Each month Amazing! magazine has a different theme , this months is Awesome Oceans. Previous themes include Ancient Egypt and Super Planets. For us as home educators this is a great way to introduce new topics, spark interests and explore the world around around us.
Inside of the magazine there is so much to capture a young mind. The layout is bright with fun illustrations and is easy to follow. Each part links to the curriculum with pages for literature, history, coding and art and design among others. At the moment Seb really likes finding out facts and how things work so he has been enjoying the science pages and also reading the story of Moby Dick. He has also really enjoyed the puzzles though has needed help from us with these, being at the younger age of the magazines target audience.
As a mum I love that Amazing! magazine is gender neutral, there is no stereotyping and that is really important to me. I also love that the magazine has very minimal advertising. Often children's magazines are full of adverts but Amazing! hardly ever contains advertising and when it does it is usually from children's charity's and clearly marked as an advert, it is also on the outside of the back cover so does not take away from the magazines content.
If you like the look of Amazing! Magazine you can find more information and subscribe online.
