What subscription packages do you offer?
For UK schools we offer three First News Education products:
- Activity Sheets
- The iHub.
We offer recommended packages for schools, or you can create your own bespoke package by choosing which aspects of First News Education you would like included. This can be done here.
For international schools we offer we offer the same products, but with digital rather than physical copies of the paper.
All of our subscription packages include postage and packing.
What age is First News suitable for?
First News is aimed at children between 7-14 years old. Our resources are aimed at Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 and the newspaper is also great for introducing non-fiction texts to Key Stage 1.
