The Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020

The Summer Reading Challenge is an annual event delivered by public libraries across the UK. Produced by the Reading Agency, it is designed to encourage children aged 4-11 years continue their reading during the summer holiday break from school and discover the adventures that can be had with reading for pleasure.

This year, due to the impact of COVID-19, Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge 2020 will be delivered online from June to September and will celebrate funny books, happiness and laughter.


The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children aged 4-11 to read during the long summer holiday with research showing that children's reading can 'dip' severely during the summer if they do not have regular access to books. With school life disrupted during COVID-19 lockdown and many children missing the company of their friends, this year's Summer Reading Challenge will be all the more vital as a way of helping parents and carers find fun, family-friendly activities, maintain literacy levels and create a safe space for children to connect with their peers.


Take a look at the links below for more information and to register for the challenge. Happy Reading!



ALSO... Check out the BE KIND! ideas below to keep everyone smiling. We would love to hear your ideas and see your Kindness Bingo Lock down cards so that maybe we could have a go too!



This is a phrase that I hear again and again and it is a phrase I have heard A LOT during lock down. It's easy when we are being told what we can and can't do and with life being a bit different to get grumpy and upset with others around us. But does that help? 


This week I would really like you to think about what kindness is. You could be kind to your family but you could also be kind to a neighbour, your friends when you chat online, a family member elsewhere or even the people who meet (but socially distance from) when you go out. 


Kindness is:

  • being friendly, generous and considerate of others;
  • showing goodwill to others;
  • being concerned when others are upset or worried;
  • helping people when they need you;
  • doing something nice for someone else, without expecting anything
    in return.

What is kindness to you?


Here is a bingo card for kindness acts at school.


How about making a Bingo kindness card for Lock Down.

You could make one for each member of your family and see who fills it in first.

If you find it too difficult to find 16 things, make a smaller card with less boxes. Have fun and be kind!

A message from Luke Temple...Win a signed book and author visit competition!

My name is Luke Temple. As a children's author I am passionate about getting children engaged with reading and writing.

I have:

  • Made my most popular book, Mutating Mansion, completely free to download.
  • Created an activity pack for KS2, 'Luke Temple's Writing Toolbox'. This contains lots of the tools I use to help make my books really exciting, fun and scary to read. I hope children can use the tools to have a go at their own writing.
  • There is also a competition in the activity pack to win a signed book and a free author visit to their school (there are 3 of these prizes up for grabs). The closing date for the competition is 31st May.

The book and activity pack can be downloaded from
