Do your children like to know what’s going on in the world? Are they interested in the world around them? Do they have lots of questions, including some that you might not be able to answer without looking up the information?
If this is the case they might enjoy the weekly newspaper for children, First News.
First News is the award-winning weekly newspaper for young people (aged 7-14). Produced in a traditional, full-colour tabloid newspaper format, First News presents relevant news stories and current affairs in an informative, entertaining and stimulating way, encouraging children to take an active interest in the world around them.
First News is the perfect gift for your child! Nowhere else can you find the latest news and current affairs specifically written for children.
If you set up a subscription with magazine.co.uk you can get the paper delivered to your home every week and keep the little ones up to date with what is going on in the world in a way they can understand and relate to. You can get 26 issues for £30.99.
There are lots of interesting facts and even games and crosswords to keep them busy.
I think this is a great resource for homework. My children will often have to research a certain topic and develop a fact file. They can cut pictures out and stick them into their books so a newspaper is a useful aid.
Having a newspaper to read makes children feel very grown up. Newspapers are not something we buy so they enjoy the fact they are a step ahead of the grown ups.
If your children enjoy entering competitions then there are lots of opportunities with First News.
The children enjoy the sport section and the world news section in particular. As much as the big kids love using the computer, a newspaper like this adds a new dimension to their learning.
