The all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge with its Silly Squad theme launched Nationally on 5th June, to keep children reading over the summer and support parents and carers with children already at home. Children can sign up online between now and September to take part for free. Sandwell are going to re-launch the scheme on Tuesday 22 July when all schools have officially broken up so that it complements our Summer Holiday programme of online activities and emphasises the idea of continuing reading habits outside of the classroom until September.
It’s so easy to take part. Children sign up to the easy-to-use website and create their own profile at www.sillysquad.org.uk from 5th June onwards.
