Summer Reading Challenge ‘Wild World Heroes’

Pack your bags, we’re off to Wilderville! It’s a pretty cool place, but there are lots of things that the Wild World Heroes can do to make their town even better! Join them for the Summer Reading Challenge and discover how you, too, can make a difference to the environment. We’re teaming up with WWF for a very special nature-themed challenge that will inspire you to stand up for our planet!

Wild World Heroes will feature amazing books, awesome rewards and plenty of ideas for taking care of our environment.

How to sign up Just pop into your nearest library to grab your Wild World Heroes SRC Bag! When you’ve completed the challenge, come back and tell us to receive your medal and certificate. Full details here: https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk 

There’ll also be lots of free, fun activities to join in with at the library, or why not get out and about with us in the wilds of your local area. Follow a Story Trail or solve the treasure hunts or join us for  ‘Fit, Fed and Read’ !

National Museum Cardiff Sleepover: Outer Space from Home

You’re invited to a sleepover that’s out of this world! Experience a fun-filled night at the Museum from your own home.

 

Here’s the plan:

- Build a Space Station den and get ready to explore the museum like never before.

- Go behind the scenes to the galleries and museum stores and discover moon rock and meteorites.

- Do you have what it takes to train like an astronaut? Create your own jet pack and blast off in our fitness class that’s fun for all the family.

- What’s a sleepover without some tasty space snacks?! Make moon rocky road and rocket fuel to keep you energised throughout the night.

- Watch an astronomy show and learn how to find constellations in the starry night sky.

- Settle down for a film before bed – then camp in your space station to dream of floating through the Milky Way.

- Wake up bright and early for breakfast before creating your very own moon rocks at home.
