Summer Reading

Dear Parents/Guardians,


First News is the leading source of news and news-based learning for children. It is age-appropriate (aimed at 7 to 14 year olds but accessible for all ages), impartial and helps keep kids reading and developing their critical literacy skills. 


Here at Westmorland, we love using First News in the classroom and are thrilled to offer all your school students a free First News digital subscription over the summer holidays. It’s packed with fun and educational content that will keep minds active and entertained all summer long. 


First News digital is available via an app and includes: 

  • Daily news stories which children can read, listen and react to. These include reports on the Euros, the Summer Olympics, and the upcoming general election. 
  • The latest issue of the newspaper and many past issues 
  • Weekly polls to vote on 
  • The latest episodes of Sky Kids FYI weekly news show  
  • Fun puzzles and games: great for improving vocabulary 
  • Tips & Talking points for parents and carers to help you talk about tricky topics with your children
