The HOTS Promo Video
Wow what a year 2011 was! The HOTS really took off- we demonstrated the value of creative thinking in education in our run up to the London 2012 Olympics in Hounslow.
Sofia’s Science sessions took Wellington Primary School by storm.
We continued to collaborate with schools across London, Villiers High School, Capital City Academy, Greenford High School and Acton High School to name a few. And we developed some really key relationships with community partners in Hackney, Barnet, Hounslow and … West Cornwall!
2012 looks to be a really great year for Together We Create. As ever we are keen to hear from people with good ideas who like to see things happen. If in doubt contact us via Sarah on firstname.lastname@example.org

Together We Create has a new recruit in the form of Sofia our fantastic physics expert. Sofia is in her gap year and to develop her skills and confidence she is helping younger children learn lots of brilliant science ideas. From nuclear physics to the solar system there is little that Sofia doesn’t tackle head on. To see some of the inspirational work that has taken place with her year six class from Wellington check out the slides below!

The Team at TWC are working closely with the London Borough of Hounslow, Griffin Park Learning Zone (Brentford Football Club), Gunnersbury Museum and Sports Impact Hounslow to create a series of innovative and exciting projects for Hounslow linked into the Olympics. More details to follow!
Hounslow Hold-onto-Sports (The HOTS) is back for its final year as part of the run up to the London 2012 Olympics.
The HOTS has been designed as a fun and educational way for children who may not be sporty to engage in sport and at the same time enhance their literacy and communication skills.
The HOTS focuses on what it is like to be a sports professional, either a Trainer, Dietician, Physio or PR Manger and asks the young people involved in the project to create films, animations, powerpoints and podcasts to demonstrate what they know about the different sports professionals. The HOTS is a competition with prizes awarded at the big HOTS celebration in July as part of the London 2012 Olympic Celebrations.
The HOTS is open to all schools across the London Borough of Hounslow. As part of the project, the HOTS Team can support sessions in your schools and provide free training for your staff. We are also working closely with LOCOG, Sports Partnerships and Fushion and hope to provide a calendar of free additional events throughout the school year.
For more information please contact Sarah Hoyle at email@example.com
