Headteachers, Teachers, Literacy Coordinators, Librarians
Children can still join Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge, now Teachers too!

There’s still time for children to take part in the Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge , which is running online until 30th September. The Reading Agency are also running a Teachers' Reading Challenge which runs until 31st October, to support as many teachers as possible on their return to school.

Discover something new to read today at Oxfordshire Libraries. We have now re-opened 20 libraries and have an extensive online eBook and eAudio collection from which you can borrow for free.

To finish Silly Squad, children need to add the books they have read to their online profile to unlock their summer 2020 rewards before the Challenge ends. Even when it finishes, the Summer Reading Challenge website stays up all year. Children can still log in to their profile to rate and review books, play games and use the Book Sorter for brilliant new book ideas!

The Teachers’ Reading Challenge is free to join, with access to booklists, recommendations, reading for pleasure articles, as well as tips and space to chat to the teacher community. Increase your own reading repertoire of children’s books and develop your students’ reading curriculum, enrich your capacity to foster a love of reading, and enhance your reflection on the nature of reading and being a reader.
To take part in Teachers Reading Challenge, teachers set their own reading goal. It can be any books you like: fiction, facts, poetry, joke books, picture books, audio books. When you finish a book, you add it to your profile where you can rate and review it. Why not join the Challenge and find your next read at Oxfordshire Libraries?
