Just launched is a new Summer Reading Challenge website especially for children in Cheshire West and Chester. It includes:
- Details of exclusive free online events, which include an acting session from Carly Thoms (who played Miss Honey in “Matilda the Musical” in Manchester recently), story time with Mama G, how to do “silly face” animations with Mako Create, dancing with Cheshire Dance, Noodle Performance Arts, the professional storyteller John Kirk reading The Twits and “how to be an awesome storyteller” with Simon Adepetun.
- Competitions: each of which have the prize of a £20 book token: short silly story competition, sharing a happy memory of lockdown, drawing something silly and writing a book recommendation.
- Soon to come will be videos featuring crafts and jokes.
There’s a great video introducing the website https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsD4vnBvcHk&feature=emb_logo.
And of course there’s also the national Silly Squad website where children can join to read books and get online rewards for doing so at www.sillysquad.org.uk.
