After a group stage and semi-finals that lasted from Easter until early July, we had a Wileman Cup Final to remember in the last week of term. Two teams determined to play football the right way passed the ball around, creating a great game for the crowd of over 400. Before the match started, the […]
On what must have been the wettest July day for years, we took six mixed teams of boys and girls to the HSBC ground for a day of football. Despite the weather, we had a great day. In the morning, the Y4s teams played really well against some very strong teams to finish 4th, 5th […]

The Year 6 pupils and staff enjoyed three glorious days in sunny Stratford-upon-Avon last week. The children were a credit to the school, learnt lots about Shakespeare (and chocolate!) and made lots of happy memories.
On the same evening as our Sports Day, our team of 14 swimmers and our amazing team manager (in the black and white shirt), managed to summon up enough energy to put in some fantastic performances at the annual (returning this year after a covid enforced absence) Sheffield Schools’ Swimming Gala. All events were relay […]
4 of our fabulous mathematicians gave up their Sataurday morning to attend a Maths Conundrum at Westbourne School. The children completed against other Y5 and Y6 pupils from across Sheffield. Team work was essential, inaddition to a fluid and deep understanding of maths. The team were great ambassadors of Dore Primary School.
The Year 6 team, as well as all the adults at Dore Primary School, would like to congratulate the Year 6 pupils for the manner in which they conducted themselves during SATs week. Children approached the tests with great maturity and displayed calm, purposefulness and resilience throughout the week. Well done!
In Art, Year 6 have been creating clay busts of characters from the play we are studying this year: A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Children experimented with using wire frames within their clay sculptures to support the structure where required and the finished sculptures have also been painted. Can you tell which character each sculpture is?
