This year Lancashire's Libraries will be inviting children to get silly for the Summer Reading Challenge. The Summer Reading Challenge will give you the chance to sign up and take part online, with the special www.sillysquad.org.uk website! The Challenge website will be free to access and a place for you to rate and review books and work towards your reading goal. It will also feature video content, games, quizzes, and digital and downloadable activities to complete at home. The Library service will also be providing loads of fun free things to do including book quizzes, a reading group, and an online Lego club!
The theme of the Challenge for this year is Silly Squad, and we want to celebrate funny and silly stories all summer long! From David Walliams to Roald Dahl, and Jacqueline Wilson to Jeff Kinney, there are thousands of hilarious books for you to read, and we can't wait to hear about them!
The Summer Reading Challenge Silly Squad website is now live for you to sign up on, and we in Lancashire will be launching the challenge on Saturday 27th June, so keep an eye on our social media and website for more information!

Readtheory – Children have these logins at the back of their homework folders. It initially assesses the reading and understanding level and sets comprehension activities based on current working levels.
I will be uploading a chapter of Private Peaceful, which was chosen by the children as their next read, on to Youtube each school day. Why not listen along?
