"I love the resources, they're nicely linked to curriculum objectives and easy to pick up. Especially good for the
science-phobic amongst us as the ideas are all there."

Historical scientist Carl Linnaeus
A non-fiction biography text for year 6 and P7, linking to the topics Living things and habitats and Biodiversity and interdependence. Carl Linnaeus was a botanist and doctor whose ideas on naming and sorting organisms are still used today. Carl divided all things into three kingdoms: animal, vegetable and mineral. Kingdoms were divided into classes, then orders, then genera and finally into species. (In modern classification, we also include the ranks of family and phylum.) Carl used binomial classification, where every living thing is named after its genus and its species.

"My daughter received her first issue yesterday, and she loves it! I was impressed with the quality of the content, and the paper it's printed on. I took out the year subscription and folder on a whim and so glad I did! The extra touch was her name on the envelope."Ruth Louise
"My 10 year old son and his friend spent 30 minutes reading this together, and forgot - actually forgot! - that I had permitted some gaming time for them this afternoon! Literally the first time that has ever happened. Thank you! "Flora
