Summer Reading Challenge


Let’s Get Silly with this summer’s Silly Squad!


The Summer Reading Challenge  started earlier this year, from Friday 5 June. 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. To take part this year, log on to the Silly Squad website.

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.  Also for this year, children may read anything! It can be in digital or print format from ebooks and e-audio books or books that are already at home. Don’t forget we have lots of ebooks and e-audio in our online BorrowBox library.

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.




In September, we would love to see the badges and any of the activities you have taken part in over the Summer.
