Our aim is to provide children with the tools to understand the world around them. We cover all the big UK and international news stories but always in an age-appropriate way that gives children the facts to understand what it happening.
We also cover good news too – even in 2020 when the news has been tough we have sought to highlight the positive things happening in our communities.
Plus like any good newspaper we have sections devoted to sports, science, puzzles, competitions, entertainment and animal news!
First News inspires children, fuels their curiosity and feeds their minds.
