News Kids Can Trust

Read, watch, listen & play

First News is perfect for kids age 7-14. Read it in print every week, or listen, watch and play via the First News App and Sky Kids FYI!

Learn about key world events, scientific discoveries, environmental news, entertainment, gaming and sports.

We pride ourselves on our independent, age-appropriate, non-sensationalised reporting that covers the news that matters (and not just the serious stuff!) that empowers children with an understanding of the world they’re growing up in.

First News Education brings together First News and award-winning learning resources to provide schools with a complete solution for effective news-based learning throughout Key Stages 2 and 3.

Through multi-level reading activities exploring worldwide news, First News Education supports lessons in English, Citizenship, PSHE and across the curriculum. It is our goal to equip children with an enriched knowledge of the world and the fundamental reading, writing and oracy skills they need to succeed.

Our Mission

Encouraging children’s love of reading is at the heart of First News; through our acclaimed newspaper, available in print and online, and our award-winning news-based learning tools for schools and educators.

Expertly written by award-winning journalists for 18 years, First News supports children’s critical thinking and literacy skills by sensitively explaining the news in an age-appropriate way.
