Key Stage 2 Cheerleading Competition

 

21 of our children went to a cheerleading competition, run by Team Activ, at Barnsley Gym Club in Carlton. This is the first time that the school has entered this competition and we finished in 1st place!

 

We are so proud of our children and Mrs. Porter, thank you to Mrs Shaw and Lily Whitfield for their help too! Well done everybody!
