The Twilights are our school cheerleading team. We meet together on Wednesdays after school between 3.20p.m. and 4.20p.m. We work through the year developing and learning a cheerleading routine towards a competition normally held in June or July. It is very involved with the children having to learn different formations, jumps and moves.
The team is chosen at the beginning of the year when we hold auditions, in which the children are asked to make up a short part of a routine individually or in a small group to perform. We also teach the children a small part of a routine for them to perform to help us decide. It is always very tricky, but as with all teams in school we have to select a certain number.
