It’s been an unprecedented year – with parents doubling as teachers and homeschooling becoming the norm.

Usually when school breaks up all we want to do is close our books and head off on holiday.

But this year it feels different – not only will many of us not be heading away this summer, but some parents may want to encourage their children to continue to learn, engage with the news and have some screen free time!

Prevent summer brain drain with our brilliant 10-week summer subscription plus get a free puzzle book worth £4.99!  All this for just £19.99.

Reasons to subscribe!

Prevent summer brain drain – ensure your child is still reading and learning over the summer (without realising!)

Keep up to date with what’s going on – 2020 has been a tumultuous year and it’s more important than ever that young people have somewhere trusted to turn to get the facts on what’s going on, both in the UK and overseas.  First News writes about the news in a way that is easy to understand for children.

Open up discussions – Brexit, Coronavirus and Black Lives Matter are huge issues and impact on children just as much as adults.  By providing children with age appropriate facts and details it provides a great jumping off point to start conversations on these sometimes tricky subjects.

Fun – we also cover happy news, sharing the good news stories that are happening.  We have loads of fun stuff, such as entertainment, games, animals, sport and puzzles.

FREE PUZZLE BOOK:  take out a 10 week summer subscription to First News for just £19.99 and we’ll send you the First News Puzzle Book (RRP £4.99) for free.  Perfect for screen-free entertainment, at home, in a car, in the garden or even on the beach!
