Issue 33 - "Beyond The Clouds"
We take your child to the clouds and beyond, literally and figuratively. How has air travel been affected by the recent pandemic? How challenging is it to be an astronaut? Is space exploration a waste of national resources? How effective are cloud platforms for online learning? This theme aims to bring greater clarity to these 'cloudy' issues and more.
Issue 34 -"Worlds Apart" (publishing in April)
We take your child between worlds in this issue: from tribal communities to the modern, cosmopolitan world; the world of unique traditions to ones of familiarity. From the world of the haves to the have-nots and the world between bullied and bully. This issue encourages your child to question assumptions and develop multiple perspectives, as well as put themselves in others's shoes.
Double Issue 35/36 -"The Exam Issue" (publishing in July)
Exam time? Let us help. Inside this double issue is a treasure trove of original essays (of different genres) and comprehension texts, paired with detailed notes and exam-styled worksheets, and peppered with thoughtful illustrations.
A range of topics will be covered, with an explicit focus on skills to ace the Paper 1 and Paper 2 components of the GCE O-Level English Language examinations. We also share tips and common errors.
Issue 37- "Delivery" (publishing in August)
The discussions in this issue revolve around the myriad of definitions of delivery. How has modern technology influenced delivery services? Should we be more compassionate towards delivery riders? Is how a message is delivered more important than the message itself? What happens when a mother delivers a stillborn baby? This issue promises to expand your child's mind.
