From Farnborough Library

We know there are children who eagerly look forward to reading their 6 books and collecting their medal each year to add to their collections and we wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know that your children will still be able to earn their Reading Challenge medals this summer! Things are going to be a bit different this year. The Reading Agency have brought together a fabulous digital offering to support this year's Reading Challenge and we would like to encourage all primary school aged children to take part.


We will be in touch again soon with links to more resources and instructions of how your students can sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge when it begins in July. In the meantime here is a link to the Reading Agency's webpage about this year's Challenge: Silly Squad!
