Barry Ferns (one of the TWC Team) writes about his creative session at Featherstone:
“The project at Featherstone was a creative day where creative people came into the school to talk about their careers and give learning advice. There was a theatre director, a photographer, a tabla player and sometone doing a workshop on career guidance and creative goals.
I did three workshops; one on stand up comedy, one on drama and comedy and a third on script writing. They were all an hour long and gave an insight into the three subjects for the young people. The day was finished off with a Q&A Session.
A really lovely day which was well organised by the team at Featherstone. Look forward to next year!”
Menear and Sarah are getting Creative in Cricklewood! Together We Create is supporting the Greener Cleaner Cricklewood project. Our first piece of work was this fab poster created to promote the Cricklewood’s Green Weel 16th – 22nd April.
On Thursday 1st March Mary Macleod MP visited Isleworth and Syon school to sample some of West London’s finest Smoothie creations.
10 Boys from Year Eight are currently working thought the tasks and challenges that the HOTS project has in store. Today the boys investigated food groups as part of the Dietician section of the HOTS project and before the Smoothies began flowing from the blender a very vibrant discussion was had about good and bad foods.
Next week the boys will be looking at the work of the trainer and I am told learning all there is to know about BMX Biking !

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 [email protected]

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!
