The Sandcross Talent Show is always an eagerly awaited event held at the end of the summer term each year, organised and hosted by Mrs Clare Ogle and Miss Frankie Boswell. Any child or group of children in KS2 may enter an act. They initially enter into a year group heat where they perform in front of their year group and year group teachers. The best three or four acts are then put forward to the Talent Show final.
There are two finals due to the size of the school, watched by children from Nursery to Year 6, along with staff and several guest judges. In 2015 we had a real guest judge with Shane Ritchie making an appearance! Children compete in either the Years 3 & 4 competition or the Year 5 & 6 competition although they run alongside each other. Acts are independently devised and practised with no teacher input, embodying our values of ‘independence’ and ‘contribution’. At the end we sometimes have a staff performance which is always a sight to behold!
