Anorak Magazine Volume 56 / Sharks

Anorak is the Happy Mags for Kids. Aimed at children aged 6+, it contains beautifully illustrated stories, activities and themes, all designed to spark imagination and foster creativity. Anorak explores themes based on the National Curriculum such as Art, Our World, Under the Sea and Learning, or more philosophical themes such as Kindness or Friendships and fun themes such as Cakes! Unlike magazines of today, Anorak is not a throw away title. Just like much loved children’s magazines and annuals of the past it is designed to be collected, kept, handed down and revisited. “Anorak is what would happen if Monty Python, Ralph Steadman and René Magritte decided to make a magazine for children.It's anarchic, fun, laugh-out-loud strange and readable for kids of all ages.” —Huffington Post.

Dear ANORAK friends, Welcome to a new edition of our Happy Mags for Kids, dedicated to the most misunderstood creatures on our beloved planet: Somehow, these majestic creatures are perceived as ferocious man-eaters. Well, they are not! You will be amazed to know that there are over 500 different species of sharks, ranging from tiny little ones that would fit in our hands, to humungous ones that would not fit in an aeroplane! We may not have enough pages to feature them all, but jump in to discover which ones are our favourites and why each of them deserve our respect. This edition was made with the precious help of our new Shark-Friend Cat Gordon, The Shark Trust’s Senior Conservation Officer. Thank you Cat for your generosity and amazing shark knowledge. If you’d like to…

easy peasy fun

HAPPY HAND ART Lay your hand flat on a piece of paper, draw around it. Cut it out (the paper hand, not your real hand!). Decorate it with nice messages or patterns. Make a few and pin them to your bedroom walls or on your windows. OPPOSITE HOUR Play a game of opposites with members of your family by saying the exact opposite of what you mean. TURTLE DAY Pretend you are a turtle for a day by walking very slowly everywhere. CORRIDOR BOWLING Take half a dozen empty plastic bottles, fill them with sand or rice. Line them up at one end of the corridor. Position yourself with a soft ball at the other end of the corridor and bowl to strike it lucky! COLLECT SHAPES Pick a basic shape, such as a triangle. Make a list of…

collecting is fun!

WHAT ARE VINTAGE BOOKS? They are books that are at least 20 or 30 years old. There are plenty for every subject: jokes, flowers or fairy tales! WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE? They look like any books, some are tiny and others have a hard back. They may have a few stains, carry their previous owners’ names inside, or even some secret messages. WHY DO WE LOVE THEM? We love them because they are objects that have travelled from the past, handed from one child to another. They are often a bit strange. We once found one about computers, written before computers were fully invented! ARE THEY EXPENSIVE? Not at all! They range from free to a few coins. You can get them for nothing by asking grown-ups around you if they have some from their childhood.…

thinking is fun

Seeing is believing. “It’s true only sometimes but not all the time. For example, I have not seen any aliens yet, but I believe in them. I think we have not discovered them yet, but there are some.” Sophie (9 years old) “If we see something, then we believe in it. I agree because it is true.” Indie (9 years old) “Once, I didn’t believe there were such things as red squirrels, but we talked about it with my mum and it was true. She showed me some on her phone. So now I believe it.” Jorge (7¾ years old) “Our teacher told us that if you can imagine something you can do it. So if I see it in my head, then I can believe in it. I think that’s true then.” Ethan (10 years old) “Yes. I…
