As the school library is closed for the summer holidays why don't you head down to your local library to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge. It is the UK's biggest reading event for children in libraries, run by the charity, The Reading Agency. This year's Summer Reading Challenge is called Mischief Makers, inspired by the iconic children's title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary. It's completely free to take part and is a great way to keep up the reading over the summer holidays.
The aim of the challenge is to get children between 4 and 11 to read any six books of their choice from their library during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library and children will explore a map of Beanotown to find 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! Those that complete the challenge will receive a medal and certificate at the end which will be given out in assembly in the autumn term.
