We are pleased to confirm that both class 3 and class 4 will be participating in swimming sessions at Diss Swimming Pool in 2016.
As part of the new National Curriculum all pupils must be able to “swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres” by the time they leave primary school and this is one of our PE Development targets leading into 2015. We have targeted a whole term of lessons for years 3 and 4 this year as we review our current swimming provision to ensure pupils are given the best opportunity to access lessons.
Class 3 will continue swimming at Diss Pool until Easter. After this, year 5 will swim on Thursdays until after SATS, when year 6 will also join them. More information and permission slips will be sent out nearer the time.
Spring Term 2016
We must say a very big “well done” to Ellesha who represented our local Cluster of schools at the UEA Sportspark at the South Norfolk School Sports Partnership Swimming Gala in January. She was placed third in the 25m backstroke so well done Ellesha!
Summer Term 2016
I am pleased to confirm that this year all our year 6 pupils reached the National Curriculum requirement to swim 25 metres at the end of year 6. In fact many could swim much, much further so well done everyone!
