Pupils to compete in Blandford's got talent
PRIMARY Schools from the Blandford School network competed in an annual talent show hosted by The Blandford School.
The show is part of the transition programme which helps primary school children transfer smoothly up to The Blandford School. A total of 14 acts from seven schools demonstrated talents across a range of disciplines including singing, playing musical instruments, dance and comedy.
The competition was judged by Graham Haigh, Brian Winkle and Sally Wilson (headteacher, The Blandford School). Mrs Wilson said: "We have had a very enjoyable afternoon watching all of these amazing acts. Thank you very much for all the time and effort that you have taken with your performances."
The acts were supported by their parents and fellow pupils who were in the audience. While the judges were deliberating the spectators were treated to performances from students at The Blandford School.

In third place was Emma Wright from Blandford St Mary Primary School. Emma sang a complex song and played guitar. The judges thought that she was very talented in both voice and rhythm, she was very confident and composed.
Second place was given to the gymnasts and dancers from Pimperne Primary School, who performed to the theme from Mission Impossible. The judges praised the technical skills of the gymnasts and thought that the choreography was superb. The judges said: "We felt as though we were watching a Bond movie. They created a great atmosphere that was very appropriate to the music."
The winner was the very talented Jasmine Upward from Blandford St Mary Primary School. The judges thought her cheeky dance to 'We no speak Americano' was excellent. They said: "Jasmine had fantastic stage presence; she used the stage well and engaged her audience. It was top class."
