New topic focus

16 Feb 2018

We have recently introduced a topics-based approach to our magazines, to enhance teacher lesson planning. The topics will be consistent across all four levels of the magazine, enabling teachers to better plan lessons and cross-curriculum bodies of work around subject, themes or approaches.

Content topic framework for 2019

All four magazines each month will be based around a common topic.
