CHILDREN at Woodborough Primary showed they have the X Factor after their school talent show proved to be a huge success.

Around 40 youngsters, between the age of six and 11, strutted their stuff at the talent show on Friday, wowing the audience with their magic acts, bollywood dancing, singing, piano skills, gymnastics and much more.

Despite having just two weeks to prepare for the performance, Julie Wakefield, part of the school's PTA team, said each and every cast member did themselves proud.

"It was just a fantastic night. There was so much talent on show and what was lovely to see was just how much the children enjoyed it," she said.

"They had such confidence and just shone in the spotlight. It must have been a bit nerve-wracking but it went so smoothly. They should be very proud of themselves, I certainly am and so are the rest of the helpers that put this talent show together.

"There was a great mix of acts on show, be it the hoola hoopers, the super choir, the dancers or the magicians, among others, there was a wealth of talent.

"They did not have that long to put it all together but they did a brilliant job. I want to thank everyone who made this possible and to all those Year 6 performers who are doing this for the last time, I think it was a great way to end their time here on a high."

The big talent show also raised more than £200 in funds to go towards school projects.
