What do you like to do during the summer holidays?

We're challenging you to explore your local area with our summer activity challenges!

There are 3 challenges to take part in and for each challenge you complete you'll receive a certificate and small prize. After the summer back at school, you'll be awarded a bronze, silver or gold medal depending on how many challenges you've completed.

You'll be given a passport at school - keep it safe because this is how you will keep track of everything you've done over the summer.

  1. The first challenge on the passport is to have fun. We're asking you to complete 10 activities over the whole summer.
  2. The second challenge is to read 6 library books over the summer holidays - there are books for everyone in the library no matter what you're interested in and we'd love you to challenge library staff to help find something for you.
  3. The third challenge is to watch the grown-ups around you. How much reading do they do? What are they reading? Whether it's a book or magazine, a map for directions, the recipe for dinner or messages on their phone - it all counts as reading.

Come into the library when you've completed your challenge or even before - there's lots to do in our library over the holidays and we'd love to know how you're getting on.

Once you've completed a challenge bring your passport and the proof of your activities along to your local library and let staff know what you've been doing - you'll get your certificate and a small prize. Everyone completing a challenge goes into a draw for some different prizes at the end of the holidays.

You can do as many challenges as you like and you don't have to wait to finish one challenge to start another, you can do them all at the same time!
