Gymnastics Display at Dore Show 2017

posted 9 Oct 2017, 23:53 by Richard Hanks   [ updated 10 Oct 2017, 09:09 by Andrea Atkinson ]

On Saturday 9th September 12 pupils performed a Gymnastics Display at The 'Dore Show'. 

All the girls did not have much time to perfect their routines as the show was the first week back after the summer holidays. The day of the show it rained throughout the day but then the sun appeared for a short time so we quickly got the gymnastic mats out for the display. Everyone performed a fantastic routine. 

We had lots of positive comments from the public throughout the afternoon so well done girls.

Y5 Girls Cricket Final - 2nd Best in Sheffield!

posted 26 Jun 2017, 09:12 by Richard Hanks

A fantastic day of Cricket was had today at the Sheffield Hallam Sports ground organised by Sheffield City Cricket Club.

After the Y5 girls won the South Sheffield competition last week, they swiftly progressed to the city final today. The standard of play obviously increased significantly and the team were up to the challenge. They qualified from their group and progressed through the quarter-final and semi-final to the overall final, where we met our old nemesis Greenhill, who won out.

The girls were disappointed at this last result, but incredibly proud that they are the second best cricket side in Sheffield!

They were a super team, who organised themselves brilliantly and supported and encouraged each other in exactly the right way. they recognised good play from any team and enjoyed their special day. All of them have made excellent progress since coming together as a team just a few short weeks ago. Well done Y5 girls!

A big thanks to the parents who supported with lifts, snacks, tips and encouragement at very short notice.

FS2 visit to Whirlow Hall Farm

posted 16 Jun 2017, 05:08 by Matthew Smith   [ updated 16 Jun 2017, 05:25 ]

FS2 made the most of the improving weather by heading to Whirlow Hall Farm for a wonderful day on Wednesday!

The children were fantastic ambassadors for the school and we had some terrific guides.

In the morning Miss Bradley's class acted out the Little Red Hen story, having a go at all the jobs Little Red Hen had to do whilst Mr Smith's class had a tour of the farm.  In the afternoon we swapped over!

It was a immersive experience for the children, who will now go on to use this in future learning.  A huge thank you to the staff at Whirlow Hall Farm and all the parent helpers, without whom the visit would not have been a success.

Infant English Celebration Assembly

posted 12 May 2017, 09:49 by Georgina Bradley

We were really proud to celebrate our fantastic writing in our English celebration assembly this afternoon. Take a peek at our work below:

In Foundation Stage, the children have been writing all about pirates, arrr! As you can see in the work below, children have worked independently by using their phonic knowledge. Great ideas too!

Year One have been making some 'Grow your Own' booklets, focusing on instructional writing and presentation to capture an audience, as well as practising their imaginative story writing.

Year Two have been writing some exciting news articles. They have taken the time to join their writing and have even self-corrected and peer assessed their work. Fabulous!

Finally, we enjoyed celebrating all the children who have been working hard to earn their bronze awards.

Well done everybody!

Back to Roots

posted 1 May 2017, 16:36 by Richard France   [ updated 15 May 2017, 04:45 ]


Last week, one of our former pupils returned to school to say hello.  Joe Root, the new England Test Cricket captain, helped out in assembly and then gave Y6 pupils a cricketing masterclass.

He was accompanied by a whole host of journalists, who were interested in the story of him returning to his primary school.  The event was organised by 'Chance to Shine', the cricket charity funded by the ECB to get schoolchildren playing more cricket.

It was a fantastic opportunity for all the children in the junior school to get to meet someone who just a few years ago was in the same classrooms as they are now.  Joe has enabled them to understand that through skill, hard work and determination, dreams can be achieved.  Truly inspirational!


The coverage in the press has been very complimentary about Dore Primary School.  Journalists picked up on our strong values, including respect and kindness.  They also mentioned powerful pieces of work they saw displayed around school, including letters to Theresa May about the Syrian refugee crisis.  Joe said that the belief in equipping children for the world around them was as strong now at Dore as it was in his time here.
