Summer Reading Challenge has started!
The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, then read six library books of your choice to complete the Challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s FREE to take part!
What is the theme?
Every year the Challenge has a new theme. This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is called Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved iconic children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary.
Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure and become ultimate mischief makers. Dennis, Gnasher and friends will help young readers solve clues and collect stickers, having lots of fun and adventures along the way!
Is it suitable for my child?The Summer Reading Challenge is inclusive of all children and families and all stages of reading development. Children choose whatever they want to borrow. There are no levels or book bands!
There is also a mini-challenge for pre-school children so that the whole family can take part.
Where do I sign up?
Go to any local library during the summer holidays – the sooner you go the longer your child will have to read six books. Staff will register your child for the Challenge and give them some fun materials to get them started.
My child has completed the Summer Reading Challenge and has been given a certificate and medal. Should they bring them into school?
Yes please! We want to celebrate all pupils who complete the Summer Reading Challenge during the first week back in September.
