WAES offers free family learning workshops designed for parents and children to work together.

Learn practical ideas and things to do with your children to help them get ahead with their own learning.


Bumblebear workshop, April 2018

WAES Family Learning team ran a Bumblebear workshop for families with young children in April 2018 at Maida Vale Library. The workshop was based on the book The Bumblebear by Nadia Shireen. Families had a wonderful reading of the story by Hatty of Westminster Libraries, followed by learning a lot about bees, honey and conservation. Everyone made a Bumblebear Hat and read their very own copy of the book.
