Shropshire Libraries are calling for children to sign up to the Wild World Heroes Reading Adventure for the 2021 Summer Reading Challenge.
We are very glad to be offering the full challenge this year and to welcome families back into our libraries.
The Summer Reading Challenge asks 4-11 year olds to borrow and read library books over the summer. The theme for 2021 is Wild World Heroes, sponsored by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund), where the children can help save Wilderville by reading 6 items (books, audiobooks, articles, poems etc.) and collecting the prizes for progressing through the challenge, finishing with a medal and a certificate.
To take part in the Wild World Heroes reading challenge all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library – it’s free.
Cecilia Motely – Portfolio Holder for Communities, Place, Tourism & Transport said “This is a wonderful opportunity for libraries to welcome children and families back into their spaces. The Summer Reading Challenge is a fantastic way for children to continue reading through the school holidays. So many children love taking part in the Challenge and I am sure this year’s will be as fun and exciting as ever with its celebration of our wild world and how we can look after it.”

This week we have been learning how to keep safe online (as year 6 have been carrying out assessments this week, they will be doing this next week).. We have spent the week raising awareness about being safe when using the internet. Online safety for everyone is important, but online safety for young people of school age is crucial. Finding ways to warn of the dangers of invasive online activity is essential, but keeping abreast of the continually evolving online platforms can be a challenge.
Each class spent the week discussing a different issue relating to online safety.
Reception – Adventures of Smartie the Penguin
Year 1 – Digiducks Big Decision and how to be a good friend online
Year 2 – What will the children leave behind? What is a digital footprint and how can they ensure that theirs will be a good one?
Year 3 – Cyberbullying – Why it is important to think before you post and what does it mean to give consent?
Year 4 – Screen addiction – How much time do we spend online? What are the implications of spending too much time online?
Year 5 – Websites – Is everything that we see online true? The children in Year 5 have made their own website to explain how to stay safe.
Year 6 – Life streaming – what is it and what are the dangers? Year 6 will also explore copyright and what implications there are to illegal downloading.
In addition, children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 have been using the resource Jessie and Friends from the ‘Think U Know’ website which follows the adventures of Jessie, Tia and Mo as they begin to navigate the online world. This resource helps them realise that while the internet can be an exciting place where they can learn and have fun, sometimes they may encounter things online which makes them fell worried , scared or sad. It reinforces the message that if a child ever feels worried about anything that happens online, they should seek help from an adult they trust.
Years 3 and 4 also used resource from the ‘Think U Know’ website which follows the adventures of Alfie, Ellie and Sam as they form a band and enter their school’s Battle of the Bands contest, taking on the mean but ‘cool’ Popcorn Wizards as they go. The three friends learn that while the internet can help, they need to use it wisely and safely. The aim of the film is to help 8-10 year olds learn how to stay safe online. In particular, the films teach them to spot the early signs of manipulative, pressurising and threatening behaviour by people they might meet online, and develops their confidence to respond safely and get help.
