Be a reader
Hello Parents and Carers,
We have always encouraged children to read over the summer holidays so that they continue to build their skills and confidence in this area. The local library staff usually host an assembly in school during the 'Summer term' to discuss the summer reading challenge. Unfortunately due to the disruption caused by Covid-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and public libraries, the 2020 challenge will launch as a digital activity.
This year, Silly Squad, the Summer Reading Challenge 2020, will celebrate funny books, happiness and laughter. Children taking part in the Challenge will join the Silly Squad, an adventurous team of animals who love to have a laugh and get stuck in to all different kinds of funny books!
The Reading Challenge will run from June to September, launching with a week of activity from Monday 1 June and culminating in an official launch day of curated events on Friday 5 June 2020.
Although library buildings are closed, libraries will continue to deliver the Challenge through virtual services and e-lending platforms.
The digital Challenge will be accessible for primary-aged children of all different reading levels and free to access, featuring games, quizzes and digital and downloadable activities to encourage children and their families to take part in reading related activities at home.
Please encourage your child to join this exciting reading challenge.
Access free audio books to listen to. You can write or draw in your exercise books in response to stories listened to.
I look forward to reading your comments about the amazing books you have listened to! Please make sure you add the title and author of the books you listen to.
