“We’ve recorded a notable improvement in both reading progress and attainment in all year groups across the school. We believe the weekly use of First News as part of our learning journey is a significant contributing factor to this. Our pupils have an increasing awareness of the wider world and we feel that our work with First News is helping us to give them the exposure to current world news that they need”
Gemma Hall, Assistant Head, Portway Primary School
“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
“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”
