Lockdown won't stop the Wybunbury Summer Reading Challengers! We always have such high numbers of families who take part in the Summer Reading Challenge and this year is slightly different but still lots of fun...
This is the message from the people at the Summer Reading Challenge
This summer we're going to get silly! The Summer Reading Challenge 2020 will feed the imaginations of the UK and create a greater sense of togetherness through the joy of reading.
For 2020 we are delighted to present the ' Silly Squad' – our hilarious cast of characters ready to bring the UK a seriously silly summer. Using the power of silly, we will help kids stay kids and embrace the fun just when we need it most. We have created our online Silly Squad to entertain and engage children with uplifting content and reading recommendations.
With the disruption caused by COVID-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and public libraries, we are delivering the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge online so we can ensure we continue to reach as many children and families as possible.
The all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge with its Silly Squad theme will launch earlier than usual to keep children reading over the summer and support parents and carers with children already at home.
It's so easy to take part
-Children sign up to our easy-to-use website and create their own profile at sillysquad.org.uk from 5th June onwards.
-They set their own challenge to read any amount of books during the Challenge, with children being encouraged to read anything that makes them happy – whether it be comics, joke books, poetry, fiction or non-fiction; in digital or print format; from e-book lending through the public library service or from what they already have at home.
-Each time they finish a book, they add it to their profile and write a review.
-Families are encouraged to join in and 'Get Silly' with downloadable activities, games, quizzes and more. With new content to enjoy each week, the fun will continue throughout the summer to keep families engaged.
- They receive a downloadable certificate once they've completed their challenge!
They are rewarded with activities and incentives
along the way, such as online badges, games and videos.
Let your teacher know on a Seesaw or Tapestry if you sign up and what books you have read!
