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.

How to sign up and why

Children can join The Silly Squad online from Friday 5 June 2020 when it officially launches nationally. Simply visit the Silly Squad website (opens in a new window) to register.


We all hope that you are staying safe and well! We have put together some ideas for you to support your children at home with their learning.

Every morning at 9.00am Joe Wicks will stream a live PE lesson for everyone to join in with at home. You can access all of his PE sessions so far by clicking here.
