Summer Reading Challenge

Every year we encourage the children from our school to particpiate in the library's Summer Reading Challenge. 

This year although the  Summer Reading Challenge looks a little different we still want to encourage families to take part .

With the disruption caused by Covid-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and public libraries, the 2020 Challenge will launch in a new digital format designed to keep children engaged and interested in reading. It will support parents and carers with children already at home, offer schools exciting ways to animate remote learning, and provide great content for those back in the classroom. Many wonderful partners are supporting the Challenge this year to help us reach even more children than ever. The Challenge will run from 5 June to mid-September.

The Summer Reading Challenge website is free to access and features games, quizzes and downloadable activities that incentivise and encourage children to take part in reading related activities. Although public library buildings are closed, libraries will continue to deliver the Challenge through virtual services and e-lending platforms.

Visit your local library website to find out how you can access eBooks, audiobooks, comics and magazines for free that you can use to complete the Challenge at home.
