Summer reading challenge

Here is information from the library service about this year’s summer reading challenge.  Follow the link to register.

The Summer Reading Challenge combines FREE access to books with fun creative online activities; This year it has been extended and will be launched on Friday 5th June and run until mid-September.

 How the Challenge works

  • Children sign up online to the Digital Summer Reading Challenge
  • The website will be free to access, featuring games, quizzes, digital and downloadable activities to incentivise and encourage children and their families to take part in the Challenge at home. Although library buildings are closed, libraries will also continue to deliver the Challenge through virtual services and e-lending platforms i.e. Borrowbox, Facebook and Twitter.
  • Children taking part this year will be asked to set their own reading goal and we are keen to see if this encourages take up and completion. However, we will still be suggesting six books as the best goal to try for. Children who complete their Summer Reading Challenge will be able to download a certificate.

Quizzes can now be accessed on line.  Please use the link below and then enter in your user name and password.  You just need to click on the Accelerated Reader tab to access the quizzes.

If you are getting to the stage where your child has run out of books. There are nearly 500 articles under the ‘Accelerated Reader Articles’ button that your child could choose to read and then take a quiz on. If you are downloading e-books and want to know if they are on Accelerated Reader, you can find titles here:

Accelerated Reader is also offering free books through its MyOn site.  You can find books here:

You can also access free e-books from the Oxford and Collins websites.  Links are below:

Year 5 and 6 challenge

This week the challenges are around shape and space.  Feel free to pick ones that you would like to do.

Four Triangle Puzzle

This one asks you to find how many different shapes you can make with 4 triangles.  It is a good starting point for thinking about different shapes.

Name that triangle

If you liked the last activity then you will enjoy this one.  It is one that extends your thinking about triangles.

Square Corners

This one you can play as a game.  You have to place counters on a grid without making squares.

Sometimes, always, never

This one is good for thinking about what you know about shapes and what the exceptions are.

Shape draw

This is a good one if you want to have a go at drawing shapes.
