Summer Reading Challenge has started earlier this year, from Friday 5th June.
The launch kicked off with a ‘Let’s Gets Silly’ virtual event on the Summer Reading Challenge’s Facebook page for the all the family to enjoy. You can still watch the short videos featuring a host of silly readings and family themed activities by celebrities and best-selling authors.
The digital challenge platform is now up and running and is FREE for children and their families to join and use, providing a safe and secure sign-up process. This is a great opportunity to develop skills and enjoy reading as a family.
Children will be able to set up their own personal reading goals. We are encouraging them to read six books, although this year there is no minimum (or maximum!) number to be read.
Instead of coming into the library to collect stickers, children will be able to record their progress through the Challenge online and unlock virtual rewards as they go. You can also print a certificate at the end. The Silly Squad website will include games, quizzes and downloadable activities to keep everyone entertained at home as well as a book sorter which offers reading suggestions.
Visit the website for futher information. We are looking forward to reading their reviews.
