Welcome to the subscription website for 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 opens children's minds to the issues of today, informing, entertaining and stimulating them to take an active interest in the world around them.

Since its launch in 2006, First News has become the widest read children's weekly publication with over 1 million readers each week.

Nowhere else can you find all the important stories in an easy and digestible format, in a voice aimed at inquisitive children - the very children who in turn will grow up to be the country's great communicators.

Additionally, we're proud to announce the launch of a brand-new series, First News Hotseat. This will see some of the country's most powerful men and women questioned by children about the issues that affect us all.

...9th November marks 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.  In this special 8-page pull-out, we report on why the wall was built and how it came to crumble, through a series of news stories written as if published at the time, along with helpful bite-sized facts and figures. Spanning 40 years of history and the background to the conflict between the West (led by the USA) and the USSR, it’s everything you need to know about the most famous symbol of the Cold War, the Berlin Wall.
