Talented Bournemouth school children took to the stage and showed they have really got talent.

The pupils of Avonwood Primary School wowed audiences when they showed off an array of many different performance skills in their own ‘Got Talent’ show.

Inspired by the popular ITV programme Britain’s Got Talent, the youngsters put on such a good show that if Simon Cowell had been there he would have given them all a ‘golden buzzer’.

It saw youngsters from Years 1, 2 and 3 demonstrate gymnastic, karate and dance skills, while singers took on numbers from hit shows like Beauty and the Beast and Matilda.

Head of Avonwood, Chris Jackson, said: “This was a fantastic way for our school to end 2017.

“The talent on show was incredible and it was impossible to pick a winner – they were all fantastic.

“So much hard work has gone into this production which was organised and a choreographed by a team of teaching assistants, led by Stacey Gilbert.

“Our parents gave the children a much deserved, rapturous standing ovation.”

In the run-up to the show, the school, which is part of Avonbourne Trust, held auditions for those who would like to take part.

When the line-up was finalised, the children attended a weekly drama club to rehearse for their big day.
