Cheerleading Festival

On Wednesday 4th December some of the children in our class took part in the GSSP gymnastics, trampolining and cheerleading festival at Gateshead Leisure Centre. We performed an energetic routine to the song Children of the Night. We chose the song as the words really stood out to us, as our generation need to come together and unite for a better future. We really got the crowd going with our 90’s classic anthem! It felt amazing to perform to such a big crowd. Well done to all who took part.
