VENUES across the borough of Thurrock will celebrate the nationwide Family Learning Festival this October, with free activities for families delivered by Thurrock Adult Community College.
Stifford Acorns Community Hub, Chadwell-St-Mary Centre, South Ockendon Centre, Grays Library, Purfleet Community Hub plus the new Lightship Café at Grays Beach Riverside Park will be holding free workshops and after-school courses for families to participate in fun learning activities together.
Families with children aged from 4-12 years will be able to get involved in cooking together at free after-school courses plus October half-term workshops including Magic Magnets science sessions and a Hallowe’en craft activity to make items to decorate your home.
Parents and carers of younger children can also join in the fun with new activities including Wheels on the Bus craft and rhyme sessions at two local libraries, a ‘Let’s Cook Together’ toddler taster workshop in the Lightship Café plus a Three Bears’ Chair Challenge in Purfleet during the half-term for 4-7 year olds.

Family Learning supports children to achieve at school. It can be transformative too, helping parents/carers to find new passions and interests and realise aspirations through further learning.
