Key Stage One Dance Festival 
On Friday 9th February over 300 children from 8 different infant and primary schools took part in the annual Diss Cluster key stage 1 dance festival held at Diss High School. Due to the popularity of the event, morning and afternoon session were held. The aim of the festival was to give the children an opportunity to perform on a big stage with bright lights alongside their friends. They all did amazing!
Each session started with a fun warm up dance led by the sports leaders. The children loved being giraffes, elephants, crocodiles and tigers. The children then watched an amazing performance, which had been beautifully choreographed by Diss High School higher sports leaders. The leaders then taught the dance in sections before putting the whole routine together. After practising their routines all schools were invited up onto stage to perform their dance. It was lovely to see some of the children step out of their comfort zone and enjoying themselves.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the leaders who helped on the day. They all worked extremely hard before and during the event to ensure that, the dancers were ready for their performance and had a positive experience. Many of the accompanying staff from the schools commented on how well they supported the children and did a great job of encouraging, engaging and inspiring them.
Participation certificates were awarded to all the children who attended the dance festival. They should all be extremely proud of their accomplishments.

It was then on to the exciting relays, first event to take place was the obstacle relay, the determination on every single child’s face was amazing to see.

Throughout the event, all the teachers looked very closely at each team to see who showed the Spirit of the Games values. It was a tough decision but 1 child from each team was selected for showing great respect towards all who took part, they not only cheered for their team in each event but also cheered for every other school as well.

A leader from Diss High School, said: “Throughout the day I saw some great techniques being shown, this amazed me by how much the schools had prepared for this event”.

The event would not have been possible without the amazing help shown by staff and the sports leaders from Diss High School, I would like to give a massive thank you to all who contributed and helped out.

Well done to all the schools that competed in our Sportshall Athletics event and a massive congratulations to Roydon Primary (Year 3&4), Bressingham Primary (Small School) and Dickleburgh Primary (Large School) who go on to represent the Diss Cluster at the South Norfolk SSP Finals on Tuesday, 23rd January and Wednesday 24th January.

Key Stage One Multi-Skills Festival
On Friday 10th November over 250 Key Stage 1 children from the Diss Cluster primary schools took part in a multi skills festival held here at Diss High School. The day consisted of two sessions;  Dickleburgh, Scole and Roydon attended the morning session and in the afternoon session it was the turn of All Saints, St Andrews, Diss Infant and Garboldisham.
The pupils rotated around ten different skills and were given the opportunity to develop their agility, balance and coordination. The children ran through ladders, weaved in and out of cones, threw balls and beanbags through hoops and at target baskets. Some of the skills were a little more challenging where they had to balance on a wobble cushion, catch, and throw balls to the sports leaders.
The day also enabled our Sports Leaders to develop their leadership skills; they helped to plan and lead the two sessions, they did a fantastic job by enthusiastically encouraging the pupils.  They demonstrated each skill and guided the young people through the skills in a fun way. This day would not have been as successful as it was without their support, so thanks must go to all of them.
It was lovely to see all the pupils who took part having fun and enjoying the activities.

Diss Cluster Cross Country
On Monday 16th October almost 250 primary school children from 8 schools within the Diss Cluster descended on the fields of Diss High School for this year's cluster cross country competition.  

There were 8 races in total, boys and girls races at 1000m (Year 3), 1200m (Year 4), 1400m (Year 5) and 1600m (Year 6).  The competitors charged around the course with some races producing clear winners but one or two saw very exciting sprint finishes to please the cheering crowd at the finish line.  All pupils running, ran with great determination, the more experienced athletes found it challenging while the new competitors seemed to enjoy themselves. By all accounts this was perfect Cross Country weather….wet and muddy!!!
The first 10 to finish in each race now progress to represent the Diss cluster at the South Norfolk SSP finals on Thursday 2nd November at Fritton Lake Outdoor Centre.  

Many thanks to our fantastic sports leaders who were a great help either marshalling the course, acting as hares for the races or collating results.

Diss Primary Cluster Hi 5 Netball

It was a great day for 100 pupils from Dickleburgh, Roydon, Burston, Tivetshall, and Garboldisham who between them fielded 12 teams to compete in the Diss Cluster Hi 5 netball competition.

To begin with our sports leaders warmed the players up and then taught them some basic netball skills in preparation for the tournament which followed.

It was really good to see the pupils develop their game play throughout the tournament and the Sports leaders did an amazing job of coaching them during the tournament.

The tournament was played as a league format and the overall winners were Garboldisham 1, runners up Garboldisham 2 and third place going to Roydon 1.

A special mention must go to the children who picked up the Sportsmanship Awards these were the children who really worked really hard in their teams and showed great team spirit throughout the afternoon. 

A big thanks must go to our Sports Leaders who were superb at coaching and officiating, they really enabled the young people to make lots of progress and have lots of fun at the same time.

If children really enjoyed this event and are looking to learn a new sport and make some new friends then please contact Sam Brotherhood (Diss Netball Club) on 07825612692 or via email
