The main thing that changes each year is the homework they do.  Find out what year they are on and copy it into the appropriate section on the Sunday School page.  

2014 - 2015   2017 - 2018     Year 1

2015 - 2016   2018 - 2019     Year 2

2016 - 2017   2019 - 2020     Year 3

Then start over again.   Go to the end of the page for the 3 year rotation of songs we sing during church!
