First News

First News is a weekly newspaper for children. We usually have copies in the library at school but during lockdown, our school subscription also comes in an online format, which we will share on this page.


How will First News benefit my child?

  • Keeps children up to date with news events in the UK and around the world.
  • Pitched so the news is engaging, but not scary or overwhelming.
  • Reporting happy news too – First News is also full of fun, happy stories and entertainment.
  • Recommended for children aged 7-14.
  • It is impartial and independent.
