Let’s put the world in “World Book Day”

World Book Day 2016 colour poster for websiteWe know Tufnell Park’s a magical place, right?  But even so, it’s not every day that you meet Pippi Longstocking, Pocahontas, Aladdin and an Oompa Loompa before you even reach the school gates. THAT only happens on World Book Day.

Great characters have been created in every language: let’s see how many our children recreate when they arrive at school on Thursday.

This year, we’re using World Book Day to celebrate the variety of literature, language and culture available to our children through their own school community. There will be a mini-festival after school with children and families reading poems and songs in languages from around the worldplease contribute if you can (contact us in advance, or just turn up ready to read).

Lawrence of Arabia, you are massively welcome here.

Lawrence of Arabia, please come again this year!

The snack stall at the event is also going global in celebration of our community’s multi-national roots (and frankly, ‘cos Tufnell Park LOVES an international feast!). Again, please donate snacks or finger food if you can.  The money raised will be used for a gardening and international cooking project for children and families during the summer term, and you’ll hear more about that on Thursday afternoon, too.
