Our World Book Day really is about… world books

Let's share our love of reading with children across the world.

Let’s share our love of reading with children across the world.

Tufnell Park School is reaching across the world on World Book Day, 5th March. While celebrating the books we love, we’ll be raising money for the Rural Libraries Project in Cajamarca, Northern Peru. Our very own Ms Heery will tell us more about her involvement at a special assembly on Thursday morning – where she will, of course, be addressing a hall full of Hermiones, Beast Quest Toms and other well-known characters. The money we raise from voluntary £1 donations for dressing up, and from our after-school cake sale (please donate!), will help pay for a newly-translated book for the children of Cajamarca, dedicated from the children of Tufnell Park.

To find out a little more about the community we’ll be supporting, follow the link below to a trailer for a prize-winning documentary about the region (worth seeing for the stunning landscape alone!):

We’re also celebrating language and literature closer to home, with a parents-and-children poetry reading in many languages.  That’s in the school hall after pick-up: so come along, buy a cake, let your children have a go at talking about their book character at our “Just a minute” character challenge, and listen to some poetry in the amazing range of languages we boast at Tufnell Park.

Go home replete with sugar and the marvel of words.

Cupcake, it's for you.  The perfect end to a perfect afternoon.
