SUMMER READING CHALLENGE 2020 - Join the Silly Squad!

The Children's Summer Reading Challenge is very popular in Stoneleigh but, sadly, it is not going to be practical to have this running, in the same way, this year with children coming into our library to move their chosen character as they progress, get rewards and choose books.

Silly Squad HorseInstead, The Reading Challenge will be online. Here are the details;

The Digital Summer Reading Challenge is already available on a new online platform which can be accessed by clicking below;

 

https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/

 

First, parents and carers must sign up their children and then the children set themselves a challenge of the number of books they will read over the summer - the site encourages the children to choose 6 books as a target.

All the children will be directed to Surrey’s free eResources which allow them to access eBooks, eAudio, eComics, etc from home and use them to complete the challenge.
