The Summer Reading Challenge 2020 has started! Join the Silly Squad on a new adventure by setting your own personal reading challenge to complete this summer. Create a free profile to keep track of your books, reviews, and all of the special rewards you unlock along the way. You'll also find heaps of super silly activities, quizzes, videos, games and more to keep you entertained at home. This year's Challenge runs from June to September, so there is plenty of time to take part and get silly this summer.
Now we are back at school, we won't update the library pages as often but don't forget, you can email Ruth and Lisa:
Ruth is collecting and issuing library books every Monday. To find out how this will work, read the letter below.
How can we still have a library?
Maybe you didn't think of this before, but the library is not just a room where we keep books: it is a community where we learn to love reading together. So please keep doing all those things you usually do in the library. Things like:
We would also love you to join in some activities with us that we will post each week. Keep using the library like you would at school: if you come every day to see what's new, do that. If you check in once a week to keep up with your reading challenge, we can help with that. There will be special days and events celebrating wonderful stories and national reading events. Drop us an email with your ideas.
Kieron Dyer visits the library for Share a Story week.
Kieron is an English former professional footballer, who played as a midfielder.
Born in Ipswich, he played youth football for Ipswich Town before going on to make nearly 100 league appearances for the club's first team. He was sold to Newcastle United for £6 million, at the time the highest fee paid for an Ipswich player, and made nearly 200 appearances for Newcastle between 1999 and 2007. Kieron represented England on 33 occasions between 1999 and 2007. He was a member of the England squads which reached the quarter-finals at the 2002 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2004. Kieron still lives in Ipswich and coaches the Ipswich Town youth teams.
Kieron's favourite story as a child was Jack and the Beanstalk so this is the story he read to the children in the library. Mercedes asked Kieron why this story was his favourite and he explain that as a child he was quite mischievous and adventurous and had a beanstalk magically appeared one day, he would have climbed it and taken the things Jack took!
