Summer Reading Challenge 2020 - The Silly Squad
Unfortunately Wiltshire Council won’t be able to run the regular Summer Reading Challenge in our libraries this year. However, the Reading Agency (who manage the challenge nationally) have created a digital version as an alternative.
The theme for the digital challenge will be ‘Silly Squad’ and it will launch onâ€¯Friday 5thâ€¯June (earlier than the normal challenge, due to lockdown) (readingagency.org.uk/children/quick-guides/summer-reading-challenge/).
The digital challenge platform will include a safe sign-up process, a personal profile area where children can set reading goals, review books, view book recommendationsâ€¯andâ€¯accessâ€¯guides to e-lending. There will also beâ€¯aâ€¯forum to chat to friends, play games, download and print activities, as well as family activities with rewards and unlockable content to keep children and families engagedâ€¯throughout the summer months. The platform will be free for children and families to use.
