INSPIRING LEARNING THROUGH GLOBAL NEWS
First News Education provides schools with news-based learning tools for lessons and homework, to support the development of crucial reading, writing and oracy skills in Key Stages 2 and 3. News is a unique form of non-fiction, proven to win over the most reluctant readers. But the benefits go beyond engagement. Current events have reminded us of how crucial it is for our young generations to feel informed and reassured, and it is our goal to equip young people with an enriched knowledge of the world and the fundamental skills they need to succeed throughout school and beyond.
