The Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge – The Silly Squad started on Friday 5 June.

This year it will be different. It will be a digital offer.

Children can join the challenge on the Reading Agency website.

https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/

The new platform provides a fun, immersive and safe environment for children to achieve their reading goals and explore the Silly Squad theme.

  • Children must create a free account to take part, this is a simple process and requires approval by an adult (via email). The Reading Agency are required by law to use this two-step authentication process for children under the age of 16.
  • Although you must have an account to take part in the actual Challenge, lots of other content will be available on the website for everyone to explore.
  • Children taking part will be asked to set their own reading goal.  However, The Reading Agency will still be suggesting six books as the best goal to try for.
  • Digital certificates can be printed out. No physical materials will be used.
