Good morning Year 2. How are you? I hope you’re all ok. Friday has come around quickly this week!
I wanted to share the new Summer Reading Challenge which launches today. Many of you are used to completing these Summer Reading Challenges at the library during the summer term but this year it is slightly different.
The challenge launches today and there is a new website to log your challenges. https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/
Here is their blog post which introduces the challenge. If you would like to join the Summer Reading challenge, ask your adult to log you in on the website with your date of birth to get started. You can play games, earn badges and get book recommendations with new books to enjoy.
Get ready to get SILLY!
The Summer Reading Challenge is back with Silly Squad!
It’s almost time for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, and for 2020 it’s all about funny books, happiness and having a laugh!
The Silly Squad is a team of animal friends who love to go on adventures and get stuck in to all different kinds of funny books. This year, our Challenge features extra special characters designed by the award-winning author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson, who you’ll know from amazing reads like Amelia Fang and Evil Emperor Penguin!
You can join the Silly Squad on a new adventure by setting your own personal reading challenge to complete this summer. Our new online platform will help you keep track of your books, reviews and the rewards you unlock along the way.
As always, we’ll have loads of brilliant book suggestions to get you started, and tips on how you can keep reading even while schools and libraries are closed. We’ll also have heaps of super silly activities, quizzes, videos, games and more to keep you entertained at home!
Silly Squad officially begins here on Friday 5 June 2020.
Keep an eye on this website for the latest Summer Reading Challenge news, including details of our fantastically fun launch party!
We’d love to hear how you are getting on with the challenge so please do let us know how you do!
Have a great day and enjoy your weekend. Fingers crossed for some sunshine! Stay safe,
