Transcript

'News' sounds like 'new', so I think it's probably things that have just happened.

It's a true fact that's important.

News is what's going on around the world that you should be aware of.

News is what's happening in the world, but it can also be small news - about your family, to pass by word of mouth, like if a new baby's born.

I think news is something that doesn't usually happen, but has happened and it's special for someone.
