First News is a weekly national newspaper for children. It is independent and has no political affiliations. It is mostly bought as a subscription and is delivered into homes across the UK (and some overseas) every Friday.
We teach children about what is going on in the world. We have a wide range of articles to inspire children and fuel conversations. We report all the main news stories but do so in a responsible way so as not to frighten children but to make the stories relevant too. We try to report a lot of happy news. News is not just about the chaos of Brexit or the turmoils of natural disasters. Of course, we report on these but we report on so much more positive news as well. The newspaper has different sections: Headlines, UK News, World News, Special Reports, Science, Animals, Entertainment, Games, Books, Crazy but True, Puzzles, Sport and lots more!
It is colourful, very visual and we have some news in bite-sized chunks as well as longer articles so we can cater for different reading levels and attention spans.
First News is also available from good newsagents and supermarkets across the UK.
