First News, the UK’s only children’s newspaper, is jam-packed with loads of great features which help children make sense of the world around them. It’s bursting with engaging articles, eye-catching photos, and big ideas – a virtual trip round the world every week – with the latest news, sport, technology, interviews, debates and pages of boredom-busting puzzles and games.

First News fuels curiosity, inspires conversation and helps children form opinions about the world and their place in it. We believe, with a passion, that young people should be agents of their own future. Children are 27% of the world’s population but 100% of the future! And, for the world to become a better place, the next generation needs to be better informed than the last.

We love First News

Bella turned 8 last week, shes really grown up lately asking lots of questions about the world and whats going on. I looked for ways to help show her whats going on, I came across First News. A non scary age appropriate news paper! This makes Bella feel so grown up she absolutely loves it. She sits in her room reading it, and even likes to show her little brother. Thank you First News for really helping us at the moment, she feels involved and it's helping her understand the world around us.

First News keeps my kids informed!

We’ve always wanted to be honest with the kids about what’s going on in the world but it’s been, at times, overwhelming. Which is why we are big fans of First News. This newspaper has been designed specifically for young readers and presents the news and current events - as well as sport, video games and entertainment- in a child-friendly format, without dumbing down. What I really love is that they also report lots of good news stories too proving that there is happy news out there too.
