First News

Each week we will post the latest copy of 'First News' on this page as a PDF for the children to enjoy. All our classes are used to receiving a weekly copy of this newspaper for their classroom and enjoy reading the latest news, having a go at the puzzles and taking part in challenges and competitions.
