resource in the classroom

Read all about it

Weekly Headlines Posters is a newspaper display and teaching resource designed to keep your pupils

engaged with the news. The real-world news connection helps pupils to understand the importance of the

information they are learning.

Please note: Subscribers to six or more weekly copies of the newspaper can also use the digital version of

First News on their interactive whiteboard to support and develop the following activities.

Talk about it

Download the First News Weekly Headlines Posters every Friday to put up in the classroom and prompt a

discussion about what’s in the news. Can the pupils spot any headline writing techniques? Ask pupils how

the headlines grab their attention and make them want to read the story. Can pupils predict the stories from

the headlines alone?

Write about it

Pupils could practise using the headline writing techniques and write some alternative headlines.

Download the First News Newspaper Front Page Features resource from the TES or the Teachers’ section

on our First News website www.firstnews.co.uk/teachers. Explain how the lead and standfirst develop the

headline for the President Obama’s European tour story.

Get the pupils on our First News website www.firstnews.co.uk where they can comment on stories in the

Join in section and submit School News articles to the News section.
