It’s 📚WORLD BOOK DAY 📚 next THURSDAY 1st MARCH and there are all sorts of great things going on at Tufnell Park School! 🎉
- Look out for tokens for a FREE World Book Day book in school bags, these should be coming home this week.
- On Thursday 1st your child can dress up as their favourite fictional character/character from a book. Don’t worry – we have some ideas for easy costumes below!
- We’ll be holding a Book Swap straight after school on Thurs 1st. Over the next few days please bring in a book (or a few!) you are done with, suitable for readers aged from nursery-year 6 and leave them in the boxes in the reception area. Then, after school, children can come along and choose a FREE book!
- There’ll also be a school uniform sale at the same time, so a great opportunity to pick up bargain TPS uniform pieces ahead of spring/summer.
Book drop boxes – please leave your donated books sorted (roughly) by age group.
Costumes giving you a headache?

Big thanks to everyone who supported the Fundraising Friday stall last week with donations or buying!
We raised £126 for Junior Classes!
Fundraising Friday this Friday!
Donations of cakes, biscuits and healthier options appreciated. Or come by and support the stall. Funds raised are for the Junior Classes.
The PTA are holding an evening of entertainment for the grown ups on Friday 16th March. We plan to have a quiz, live music and a bar.
More info and tickets for pre-sale available soon!
If you want to volunteer to help on the night, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The PTA have agreed to fund new touchscreens for every classroom. These new screens are packed with interactive features to allow us to present, share and learn better than ever before. The school believes they will have a significant and lasting impact on the learning experience in Tufnell Park School.
This has been made possible by YOUR generosity, supporting PTA fundraising events over the last few years. As the school grows, more screens will be needed and so fundraising will continue. But for now we are looking forward to installing these new screens soon.
We currently have two touchscreens installed inside Ursa and Andromeda classrooms (NOT the portable screen outside). There will be a demonstration session after half term so you can find out more about how these screens will support your child’s learning. Or visit the product site to explore their features now.
Come and visit the PTA noticeboard in the lobby to see what people in the school are offering/in need of, and see if someone else can re-use something you’ve finished with.
All items offered are to be FREE, no cash should change hands. Please remove card from board once item has been picked up. No items to be stored on school premises. All exchanges are at your own risk. Happy swapping!
A big thank you to everyone who supported today’s Fundraising Friday. Especial thanks to Diane Sparks who organised things today.
£121 was raised for new playground equipment for the children.
Have a great weekend!
