West Sussex Libraries have launched their summer reading scheme

Each year thousands of children across West Sussex take part in the Summer Reading Challenge at their library. This year, more than ever, it is important that children engage with reading over the summer break. The challenge is happening online and it’s free to take part – children can register at www.summerreadingchallenge.org.uk.

Children can read any books of their choice during the summer holiday and this year anything goes; books from home, books from school or choose from West Sussex Libraries fantastic collection of eBooks, eAudio or eComics! They can try something new or reread an old favourite.

Reading can then be recorded online, unlocking rewards as children reach their targets. There is no minimum number of books that children have to read to complete the challenge – it could be one or it could be 99!

Joining the library is free and easy to do online.


Buckingham Park Primary - learning support over the summer holidays

DB Primary - summer school learning

Year leaders have set up Learning Pathways on DB Primary consisting of five weeks learning suitable for each year group. Work will be available at 9am each Monday and will close at 3pm each Friday. The work will be available from Monday 27th July. DB Primary allows pupils to login whenever and wherever they want (providing they have internet access) and complete activities.  Teachers have assigned the children pre-made, self-marking activities from the Learning Library and created a sequence of activities for the children to complete as part of a learning pathway. The activities are all automatically marked with immediate feedback given to the child. There will be no facility to email teachers via DB learning over the summer break and of course, this opportunity is completely optional. 


All children should continue to read and be read to over the summer holidays.  There is a link in the above section for the WSCC library service summer holiday reading scheme.  Please register for this free service and continue to develp a love of reading in your child.  This will have a massive benefit on their long-term education.


The Accelerated Reader website can be used to establish the AR level of any book if you enter the title.
