Welcome to First News – a kids’ newspaper read weekly by more than 2 million children!

So, why does First News have such a large, engaged readership? Well, we believe that kids should have their own reliable news source to engage, entertain and educate them about what’s happening in the world.

We may be a kids’ newspaper, but we still cover all the main news stories, not shying away from bad news when it happens but always writing in language that kids can understand. We also write about how adults can talk to children when something truly terrible happens in the news.

Each week our readers get UK and international news, animal news, science, entertainment, interviews, games, puzzles, competitions and sports news.

Take a look at what’s featured in First News each week:

First News is great! It’s got all the facts that children want to know and I love that there is a newspaper every week.
