*Please note- As with all newspapers, plans may be subject to change during the course of the year. The purpose of providing these plans are to help the teacher in dividing and selecting topics that they would normally cover, or wish to cover, in the year. For example, you can be certain TPP will be covering the 1916 Rising in the March Issue, Engineers Week in the February Issue and the Olympics in the June issue.
