2018 Topics

PLAN WORK AROUND TOPICS!

 

Our magazines use TOPICS. At least two texts, often more, are linked by a common topic -  a subject, theme or approach.
Teachers can plan units of work around these topics, confident that the magazines will have stories, plays, poems, articles or puzzles on that topic.

TOPICS FOR 2018: 

  • For issues 1 – 5, each magazine has its own topic
  • For issue 6 – 10, all four magazines each month will be based around a common topic
