How First News Education is making a difference in more than 9,000 schools

“This is the Roger Federer of news resources. It’s a real class act jam-packed with information, insight and intrigue and makes children feel part of a news community”

Review by John Dabell for Teach Primary

“The children like the different range of activities on offer, how it can link to current events and that the children can take part in votes. The way articles link to crosswords, definitions the children really engage with them, also being able to make tasks harder or easier”

Craig Liddle, Assistant Head, Springfield Junior School

“We are planning for school closure – and how great to have First News and the iHub as a major source of KS3 home learning!”

Richard Long, English Lead Practitioner
